Snow removal issues at Stanley Bridge roundabout were avoidable: Trivers
Bridge – Ongoing snow removal issues at the new
Stanley Bridge roundabout were avoidable had government listened to community
concerns beforehand, says Rustico-Emerald MLA Brad Trivers.
to the construction of the roundabout last summer concerns were raised by local
residents during consultations around a number of issues, including winter snow
removal and drivers navigating directly through the traffic circle.
the time the government indicated that snow cover in winter wouldn’t provide a
safety concern. However, now Trivers is hearing concerns from constituents that
snow removal is providing an ongoing challenge and may result in snow being
stockpiled in the middle of the roundabout which could provide even greater
issues raised by the residents before the roundabout was built are the same
issues that government is now struggling to deal with,” said Trivers. “Perhaps government should have listened more
carefully to residents and tried out a simpler and cheaper four way stop
solution last summer, prior to building the roundabout in the fall."
