Town traffic will only get worse

Dear editor and Mayor Bonnette,
Regarding Hall Road, yes this town is not keeping up with the volume of traffic that has moved here in the past decade.
If we are trying to encourage people to visit our town, then we’d best get our roads ready to welcome them.
When I first moved here about 15 years ago, getting off Hall Road was easy, now you can sit there for a long time trying to access Guelph Street and it’s only going to get worse when the new subdivision on McFarlane Drive is completed.
I have also noticed a big problem with the intersection of Delrex Blvd. and Mountainview Rd. and have phoned the Town in regards to this.
In the mornings those of us who are coming from the east along Delrex and are trying to turn south onto Mountainview are lucky if one or two cars can make it though the lights in the morning.
Some mornings we are in the left turn lane backed up past Lewis Street. I was told there would be a “study” in January, but haven’t seen anything yet. They put in an advance green light so people in the mornings and evenings can turn onto Delrex east and west. Well, we need that in the mornings to go south, to get to our out-of-town jobs.
Like I said, if you are lucky two drivers might make it though the light.
If this town continues to add more homes but does not keep up with the roads, there are many accidents waiting to happen and a lot of taxpaying commuters who are getting very frustrated. I would like to see this addressed in the near future by our Town planners.
