Editor,

 

 

A couple of days ago I was in touch with Kevin Crook via e-mail voicing my concerns regarding the new wall structure at the Fort Information Centre.

This wall is an obstruction for south or northbound turns because a driver of a car or a motorcyle is not able to see beyond the wall for any oncoming traffic.  This forces individuals to creep out into the intersection and expose themselves to possible collision.

My wife had a very close incident two days ago, so I am expressing my concerns.

I am a construction safety officer by profession so I notice these situations with a critical eye.

Mr. Crook stated that he and the “owner of the property along with the Highways department were working on a solution.”  The only solution so far as I can see is that there are plants being added daily and the issue is not being dealt with.

I would appreciate someone looking into this before innocent parties are hurt, or worse, killed at this intersection.
