Poor planning

Resident challenges the ministry over plans for 20th Street

I know there have been a lot of letters about the Stickle Road project, but recently, I spoke with an engineer working at the corner of 58th Avenue and 20th Street, behind Rona.

He was surveying for a roundabout to the intersection to provide service to the new retirement home.

I think someone should ask the City of Vernon if it communicated with the Ministry of Transportation with regards to putting in this impediment for large trucks, which is the alternative route to using the intersection with traffic lights at Stickle Road.

One does wonder if anyone in the government actually knows what they are doing with regards to this project.

Lastly, Christy Clark is promoting controlling government spending while the Ministry of Transportation is planning to spend close to $9 million on its pet proposal rather than $500,000 on the lights, they themselves say will probably be needed in five years.
