Seven streets in Toronto have been voted onto CAA’s list of the 10 worst roads in Ontario for 2014.

For the third year in a row, Toronto’s Dufferin Street – which has been embroiled in construction work for years, and is undergoing resurfacing this summer – claims the title as the worst road, according to the auto club, which runs the annual online poll.

The CAA says the rest of the top five include Stanley Avenue in Niagara Falls, Kipling Avenue in Toronto, Finch Avenue West in Toronto and Burlington Street East in Hamilton.

Rounding out the top 10 are Toronto’s Bayview Avenue, Carling Avenue in Ottawa and Markham Road, Lawrence Avenue East and Wilson Avenue, all in Toronto.

The CAA says that 90 per cent of worst-road voters complained about potholes and crumbling pavement.

It says there was a 31 per cent increase in votes this year and more than 2,000 streets were nominated.

“The condition of our road network is a growing concern for many Ontario families and will be on the minds of many voters during the provincial and municipal elections,” said the CAA’s Faye Lyons.

“The CAA is urging candidates to make this critical issue part of their election platforms.”
