Drive thru is bad news for Langley City

Editor: The approval of yet another Tim Hortons in what amounts to one long city block from another in Langley City is bad news. It is bad news for drivers in the City.

Who cares about Tim’s business model?

In Langley City, 203 Street from Grade Crescent and beyond in the south is a ‘gathering route’ for the present slow flow of traffic north bound over the 204 Street overpass.

That northerly flow of traffic often crawls as it passes the Army and Navy entrance now, and yet the City has approved a drive thru that will enter Tim’s off of that road.

Tim’s exiting drive thru traffic will then route east on Douglas Crescent passing Langley city hall and bottle neck at the 204 St. traffic light at the old City post office building.

One needs not write or say anything further about this common sense subject except that city hall staff  will have prime seats to observe yet another one of their bad traffic flow choices.

Further, they might ponder the fact that drive thru restaurant traffic problems are in the news right across this country now and yet this matter has gone right over their heads.
