Traffic was bad and will now only get worse.
Now that Hall’s Prairie School has closed down and the 30 km/h speed limit has been abolished, the race track that was 8 Avenue, between 176 and 184 Streets, will only get worse.
The posted speed limit is 60 km/h but most vehicles are travelling at 80 and, in some cases, over 100 km/h.
This stretch of road is a traffic fatality waiting to happen.
At the very least there should be a long-overdue sidewalk constructed.
We have been told previously that this stretch of 8 Avenue doesn’t qualify for speed-control bumps because it’s classified as an arterial through-way. Well, if that’s the case, why can’t we have the RCMP increase their speed-trap surveillance in this area?
