Gatineau politicians can’t go far wrong by promising they’ll repave almost anything if they’re elected Nov. 5, according to a recent poll.

Street improvement is by far the most important issue to voters, with 44 per cent of those canvassed listing it as the No. 1 concern in the poll by Segma Research for Le Droit newspaper and radio station Outaouais 104.7.

The poll showed general transit issues as the second most-important priority for the next council, especially in the traffic-clogged Aylmer sector, where the issue was as important as paving.
