Traffic light plan a concern

While having a conversation with a neighbour at my garage sale, they asked if I knew that the City of Chilliwack was going to put lights at the corners of South Sumas and Tyson, Watson and Tyson and Keith Wilson and Tyson. I said no, but knew this was possible because this was the same city council that paid off mortgages for sliding homes on Marble Hill and designed an overpass that only headed west on the highway, the Evans flyover.

I would just like to know how I am to get out of my driveway as well as the many others that face Tyson and South Sumas. It’s a nightmare now.

My other question is why we weren’t consulted like we were when they moved the stop sign and changed the right of way at the corner of Tyson and Evans?

Wouldn’t  the more intelligent idea be and more cost effective change be one-lane roundabouts to keep traffic moving?

But who am I kidding. Where is the intelligence in this council? As long as it doesn’t affect them then who cares.

I urge all residents affected by this change to voice their concerns and demand to be consulted before this stupidity takes place.
