Quarter of main streets in poor state: TVA

TVA claims that studies show a quarter of the city’s major streets are in poor shape, despite the millions poured into road maintenance annually.

Update: In a glass-half-full report, Radio-Canada says that the proportion of roads in good shape has doubled in four years but is that what going from 21% to 41% actually means?

So many millions, even billions, are poured into the roads yearly. This blog usually notes the pieces that report the budget items for this, because that number is always a headline. What happens to all that cash if the roads are still 40% lousy (as reported by Radio-Canada) and only 41% are reasonably good? That leaves 19% that are presumably so-so.
