NOW Atlantic: Smart thinking for a changing world
It’s not often that those who plan and work on changes to our roads get praise or kudos. The Hillsborough Bridge to and from Stratford will soon be the hot and lasting target.
However, how about the work that was recently completed on the big roundabout just up from the bypass on St. Peters Road?
Let’s be honest. It was a big job. In a busy and high fluid area getting busier by the day. And high visibility. We all though “ohhhh noooooo.”
Wrong. They figured it out — the detour was integrated into the final design, it was effective and traffic flowed well all things considered. The traffic flow lady commanding the intersection every day for a month was an absolute pro. They finished it on time.
And the final result resolved a increasingly problematic and dangerous area.
So, for someone who uses that roundabout 10 times a week — thanks folks for a job well done! And good luck with that bridge now!
