The cost expenditures for this significant project could be significantly lowered if the Gravel Pit Road location were chosen, as the land will be agricultural as opposed to purchasing land annexed by the City of Regina. About 250 acres of high priced commercial land will be taken up for the bypass resulting in huge revenue generating losses. 

Cost expenditures for the complex bridge structure will be significantly greater if the bypass is located 400 meters east of Tower Road than if it were located at Gravel Pit Road, or even at Tower Road.

We respectfully request that the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan cause a halt to the next phase of this project and have the Ministry of Highways conduct further study and open consultation to reconsider the proposed bypass location of Tower Road to Gravel Pit Road instead.
