Action required at intersection

Another fatality at the intersection of Westside Road and the Kamloops Highway.

Another fatality at the intersection of Westside Road and the Kamloops Highway.

This appears to be a dangerous intersection and not the  first occurrence of a tragedy at this site.

Sadly enough this is an intersection often used predominately by seniors which use this pathway daily travelling to Parker Cove and all other areas along the way on Westside Road.

It is also the new alternative route which has been revised to travel to the west end of Kelowna.

Again an obvious concern that needs to be addressed immediately to avoid any other repercussions from what has happened here this week and which again has sadly resulted in the unnecessary death of a 55-year-old person and another in critical condition.

The mayor and council of Spallumcheen absolutely need to make this project a major priority immediately before we have yet another tragic repeat of what has happened here before it inevitably happens again.
