Cats eyes on 200 Street

Cats eyes on 200 Street that have been obliterated by snow ploughs should be replaced, a Township politician has urged.

Councillor Bob Long told council on Monday afternoon that when it’s dark and the roads are wet it is difficult to see the lines that separate the lanes.

He told council that it is particularly important to rectify the situation along a stretch of 200 Street south of the Highway 1 interchange where the busy arterial road is six lanes wide. He said that he would like to see cats eyes installed.

Ramin Seifi, who heads the engineering department, confirmed that 200 Street did once feature the reflective devices but they were destroyed by snow ploughs.

Using recessed cats eyes, such as those installed along Highway 1, would eliminate that from occurring, but Seifi said there are currently none in place on any Langley roads.

Long’s suggestion will be discussed by council on Feb. 13.
