Feb 22 New-Drury MeetingIt was a great turnout at the Feb. 22, 2016 public meeting where residents learned about the road work project starting this year on New Street, Drury Lane, Prospect Street, Courtland Drive, Tallman Avenue and Stinson Avenue.

The intersection of Prospect & Drury Lane was a real concern for several residents in attendance. Residents shared details of vehicles passing in the intersection and speeding along Prospect Street. Halton Police are aware of these concerns and are targeting enforcement in the area.

The Feb. 22 meeting notes and detailed traffic information for the intersection of Prospect &  Drury Lane are below.

Prospect and Drury Intersection Traffic Counts

 

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

  1. Bike Lanes on New Street is a dumber idea than bike lanes on Appleby and Walker’s Line. I walk the area every week day. they are seldom used even in summer, certainly not from October through April. Traffic in Burlington is bad enough without taking away more lanes. New Street is a major corridor. Please stop this nonsense and vote No. Spend your time on having our roads repaved. Many arterial and collector roads are in terrible shape. No more blue sky ideas please.

What's your take?
