Chemainus needs River Road traffic circle

Chemainus – I feel it is high time we got a traffic circle at River Road and Chemainus Road.

There isn’t an intersection in North Cowichan with a more pressing need. River Road is the main entrance to Chemainus for those coming from the north and is the main route for those heading north. There are more and more people living on the road and traffic on both River Road and Chemainus Road is steadily increasing.

When approaching Chemainus Road and stopping at the stop line one has no view of traffic coming from either direction; when creeping out to view the traffic the cross walk is blocked. One must wait for a break in the traffic and dart out onto the road often chancing an accident.

Must we wait until there is a serious accident before getting our traffic circle?
