Consideration in Committee of the Whole of Bills and Other Matters October 1st, 2015

If we had more time I wouldn’t mind

knowing a little more about what are they doing and when do they actually start realizing it’s a product worth using or not using. I’m just curious. I mean, they’ve been saying they’ve been testing it for a number of years. This is the first time I’ve heard it’s two years. I thought it’s been out there for four or longer than four.

The deputy minister also talked about other design tests. Can he explain and elaborate? Thank you.

Consideration in Committee of the Whole of Bills and Other Matters October 1st, 2015

So the deputy minister is saying we’re going to have to wait five to 10 years before the GNWT decides to consider purchasing that?

Consideration in Committee of the Whole of Bills and Other Matters October 1st, 2015

Has that test been successful and when do we call it an end of the test? Thank you.

Consideration in Committee of the Whole of Bills and Other Matters October 1st, 2015

I

’d like to know if we actually got

any warranty out of it, and I certainly hope that would be here before the end of session. As you know, we’re down to just a few days.

Under the test section, I know we did a section using the product called Easy Street. Is the Minister able to tell us where they used this, how many kilometres or how long of a stretch they used, and why don’t we have a placard of some sort to identify that so people can see where it’s being used? I mean, I wouldn’t know where to look for it, so no one in the public

would, so how would we know what’s being used and how much? Thank you.

Consideration in Committee of the Whole of Bills and Other Matters October 1st, 2015

It was such a good question I’m

surprised they weren’t hanging on my every word. I was asking, under the warranty program how many kilometres where actually actioned. In other words, did we actually use the warranty or were we able to access the warranty? Did we access any warranty whatsoever? Thank you.

Consideration in Committee of the Whole of Bills and Other Matters October 1st, 2015

Was any warranty action taken? If so, how many kilometres fell under the warranty program?

Consideration in Committee of the Whole of Bills and Other Matters October 1st, 2015

Since the construction of that road a few years ago, when we received all that money to redo it, I am just wondering if there was any part of that actual road that was under warranty, and if so, what sections. Thank you.

Consideration in Committee of the Whole of Bills and Other Matters October 1st, 2015

Is he really saying under the dips we are just filling holes and fixing cracks? Thank you.

Consideration in Committee of the Whole of Bills and Other Matters October 1st, 2015

Thank you, Mr. Chair. I will return to the test sections, because I would like to know more about that, but I want to understand in this particular section on Highway No. 3 how many kilometres are targeted for reconstruction and how many are targeted, I assume, just to fill in the dips. Thank you.

Consideration in Committee of the Whole of Bills and Other Matters October 1st, 2015

Thank you, Mr. Chair. I actually took that highway four days ago and I found it challenging to drive faster than 65 over the whole highway. I am just trying to understand how we look at this highway from the context of what are the sections that require rehabilitation that are defined as dips and what are the sections that are defined as maintenance. That whole highway has deteriorated horribly. I have taken it several times this summer and I will tell you it has really deteriorated quite a bit since last fall. I would distinguish, I mean the whole thing needs to be resurfaced. So, why don’t we start with those first questions? Thank you.
