Traffic jigsaw solves nothing

Wow. So that jigsaw puzzle of a mess on Canada Avenue is supposed to an improvement to the traffic situation in downtown Duncan?

Wow. So that jigsaw puzzle of a mess on Canada Avenue is supposed to an improvement to the traffic situation in downtown Duncan?

Aside from zig zagging all over, traffic lanes are barely wide enough to accommodate a car, let alone a delivery truck or emergency vehicle and the left hand turn lane onto Kenneth Street protrudes halfway into oncoming traffic.

Perhaps Duncan City Council hasn’t noticed, Canada Avenue is a main thoroughfare and turning the south end into this horrendous jumble achieves nothing.

Visitors and residents of Duncan already have to navigate the most congested streets of any small city on Vancouver Island and the pathetic claim that this second rate effort will increase safety and reduce congestion is absurd.

This is an absolute disgrace and another spectacular waste of taxpayer money by an ineffective City Council that has mismanaged Duncan roadwork into the chaotic, congested mess it is today.
