On March 25, CAA Atlantic launched the fourth annual Worst Roads campaign for Atlantic Canada. To date nearly 500 Atlantic Canadians have cast a vote for a Worst Road. The campaign is running through to April 25.
CAA members as well as non-members, drivers and non-drivers from across Atlantic Canada, are invited to have a say and submit a vote for their worst road at www.atlantic.caa.ca/worstroads.
To date the top ten leading worst roads in the region are:
1. New Brunswick 630 (Andersonville, NB)
2. Hanwell Road (Fredericton, NB)
3. Newfoundland and Labrador 360 (Milltown, NL)
4. Leslie Road (East Lawrencetown, NS)
5. Old Route 630 Highway (Saint Croix, NB)

8. Kempt Head Road (Ross Ferry, NS)
9. New Elm Road (West Clifford, NS)
10. A - Morrison Road (Sydney, NS
10. B - New Brunswick 616 (Keswick Ridge, NB)
At the close of the campaign the results will be tabulated. A top list of Atlantic Canada’s worst roads will be published featuring the most voted for roads in the region.
A road qualifies as a “worst” if it is in disrepair with potholes, fissures, cracks, and even sinkholes. They could also include poorly designed roads or ones that are too narrow for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists to share safely.
Roads and driving safety is a priority for CAA Atlantic. Poor road conditions affect us all through increased vehicle repair costs, insurance claims, work compensation, healthcare costs and precious time and energy wasted in traffic congestion. The Worst Roads campaign puts a spotlight on troublesome and even dangerous road conditions with a goal to engage municipalities and other levels of government to take action and make repairs or changes.
