Halifax Road 'Improvements'

Posted on Thu, Apr 2, 2009 at 8:22 PM

Why do we need all these new stop signs and traffic lights at intersections that never had them? Personally I have found that the flow has been killed by these new implementations.

And why did the Armdale rotary get a make over? The one and only problem with it was that people were blocking the exits of the rotary. A sign with a hefty fine would have cleared that up. And years ago I went to a City Hall meeting and suggested making Quinpool Rd. a 3 lanes up in the morning and 3 lanes down in the evening. Parking would be interrupted for 2 hours a day only, and half that would be morning when businesses are not even open. But no, the Muppets in City Hall had to get everyone all shook up over Chebucto Road and then what did they do there? The lane switch thing that I had suggested for Quinpool Rd.! The crux here people is that it all had to be done in the summer monthes when tourism is at its maximum (great impression folks!). Alot of other regions do their road maintenance at night. So now we have slowed traffic with more stops, we have disgruntled residents up and down and around Chebucto and meanwhile lots of the traffic that should have stayed on Quinpool Rd out of the rotary are now racing through school zones to get to work on time. What a Muppet Show- but that is an insult to the Muppets. Frankly it smells like someone is 'on the take'. Where is this money tree and how do I get in on it?
