Top 10 worst roads in Atlantic Canada: One is on Cape Breton Island
CAA Atlantic released the results of the 10th annual Worst Roads campaign.
The top 10 Worst Roads in Atlantic Canada for 2021 as voted by the public are:
Terra Nova Road, Terra Nova, Newfoundland and Labrador
Newfoundland and Labrador 410, Newfoundland and Labrador*
Scotch Lake Road, Scotch Lake, New Brunswick
Markland Road, Colinet, Newfoundland and Labrador

Bog Road, Falmouth, Nova Scotia
Mount Hebron Road, Studholm Parish, New Brunswick

Thousands of votes were cast over the three-week campaign this year, and every road in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador was eligible.
Votes came from all types of road users, including cyclists, pedestrians, public transit users and motorists.
Road safety is a top priority for CAA Atlantic.
Gary Howard, Vice President of Communications at CAA Atlantic says creating this list is important.
“Every year, our Worst Roads campaign allows the public to identify poor road conditions in their area. We will now notify government officials of the ten worst roads and hopefully will soon be sharing news on planned repairs and upgrades.”
Poor road conditions can result in increased vehicle repair costs, insurance claims, work compensation, healthcare costs and wasted time in traffic congestion.
