About the roundabout



Is this a cruel April Fool’s joke? No. I found out that the District of Sechelt thinks they should cram a roundabout into the intersection of Trail and Dolphin.

Do our citizens really want to spend nearly three-quarters of a million tax dollars on a small roundabout that will calm or impede traffic? In the writer’s opinion, there is a need to get your citizens to help turn around this roundabout and send it back to those who think this is a “cool” fad.

Have you seen the conceptual design? Can you imagine trying to turn a 40-foot transit bus through the small turning radius? How about slowing down emergency vehicles? How about the off-corner crosswalks and accessibility for pedestrians? How do cyclists fit into this small circle? Are there other places in Sechelt that could do with $700,000 in road improvement?

Time is of the essence. If you want to let your council know about the roundabout then you need to get around to it quickly. Council is scheduled to cast the roundabout into stone as early as Dec. 18. If you don’t think a roundabout at Trail and Dolphin is a good idea, then please get around to making your thoughts known.
