Review coming for Robertson Crescent

Robertson Crescent is a fairly straight country road that runs from 240 Street to 264 Street. Running east-west, Robertson Crescent forms intersections at two busy north-south roads, namely 248 Street and 256 Street, both of which have the right of way; traffic on Robertson Crescent is controlled with stop signs.

On Monday, Langley Township council backed a motion from Councillor Bob Long which calls for a safety review of the intersections of Robertson Crescent and 248 and 256 Streets.

Some motorists, another councillor remarked, stop on Robertson Crescent and, believing an intersection is controlled by four-way stops signs, proceed through it without looking.

RCMP have not said that was the case in a fatal crash a year ago.

On Feb. 18, 2011, an 18-year-old Calgary woman was traveling east on Robertson Crescent when the Mustang hardtop she was driving was struck by a garbage truck that was going north on 256 Street.

The woman’s cousin, a 12-year-old boy from Aldergrove, was killed instantly.
