Highway 10 repairs use "green technology"

Green Technology Used to Repair Highway 10

Five kilometres of Highway 10 between the Town of Flesherton and the Township of Markdale have been repaired using innovative green technology.

The process pulls up existing asphalt, treats and reapplies it. This
conserves both aggregate resources and energy.

The $1.5-million contract was completed by Cox Construction Ltd. of Guelph.
This is the same Cox Construction that was fined $200,000 in August 2008 in the death of one of their workers in an construction accident near Cambridge. While efforts to improve the environment are laudable, this underscores the importance of good corporate behaviour in all areas of operations - not just the environment. Hope that Cox will solve the "signal" problem that led to this tragedy.
