Spring is back and so is the Worst Roads campaign!

Vote now

And help us compile the rankings of Quebec’s Top 10 worst roads. Whether they’re crumbling, cracking, pitted or potholed... it all counts! Let’s unite our voices and votes for a road network that meets our needs and expectations.

In 2016, thanks to the Worst Roads campaign, $15 million was invested in, or allocated for, the roads that made the Top 10 (2016 progress report). Together, let’s change things!

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and watch for the hashtag #WorstRoads.
