Much as the public hearings on the Concorde viaduct in Laval have shown, one problem is the foolhardy investment in new roads is starving proper maintenance of existing infrastructures. Citizens continue to reward politicians with votes for putting in new, and probably environmentally ill-advised, road infrastructure, but then refuse to pay taxes commensurate with the upkeep of existing roads. It is a bit like at McMaster where big donations are used to build new buildings, but then the operating and upkeep costs of those buildings come out of an unchanged operating budget, reducing teaching resources in the process.
