Time for change

It’s time to make a decision that results, at long last, in major improvements to the dreadful and dangerous muddle that is Sidney traffic.

It’s time to make a decision that results, at long last, in major improvements to the dreadful and dangerous muddle that is Sidney traffic.

Sidney is ideally situated to turn most or all of Beacon Avenue into a pedestrian area.

The replacement roads, Bevan and Sidney/James White Boulevard are miraculously already there either side, one for up and one for down. So is a lot of parking area from or along both sides of all the avenues and streets crossing same.

What most clogged up towns would give for such a gift. Deliveries and collections can be limited to early morning or late afternoons. The enormous challenge to make a safe left or right turn off or on to Beacon, making allowances for pedestrians crossing, would be removed.

Overall safety would be enormously improved and traffic flow greatly enhanced. Business would flourish.

No more ludicrous consultation fees. It’s high time for some action at last, Mayor Cross.
