BC Hwy 14 to be widened and realigned with dividing barrier added — 1 Comment

  1. Here it comes! Just as our Mayor and Council, you had your opportunity to provide feedback on this concept 9 months ago. And just how much improvement to commuting will this $64 Million investment make (the price tag for the Connie to Glinz section)? Given that it shortens the route by 200 metres, the speed limit is planned to remain at 60 KPH, and if you make the new light at Gillespie; that will cut 12 seconds off the regular commute. The tangible benefit will certainly be safety and while we all agree that is a priority there has been strong community feedback that there must be a better option than to spend $64 Million to improve safety on this short stretch. However the decision has been made and the window of opportunity to have a good long term plan for our community has closed. Fortunately there will be space for the local police to conduct some speed enforcement and that could have the most significant impact on community safety.
