Letter: No continuity in traffic signals along 208 Street corridor

Editor: In reference to the letter  from Jeff Laurie (The Times, March 18), in the past couple of years, we have contacted a person in the engineering department at Langley Township, regarding the traffic light issues on 208 Street.

He doesn’t seem to give a hoot about the newest residents of the area.   According to him, wait times of 80 to 90 seconds at a red light are more than acceptable even when there is no traffic, or when traffic on 208 Street is at a standstill northbound.   His excuse was that the lights are all co-ordinated to work together.

Even when I let him know I have watched the lights at 72 Avenue and 70 Avenue and there is absolutely no continuity between those intersections, he won’t hear of it.

I even notified them about the illegal left hand turns being made every morning at the 68 Avenue junction that is only made for right hand turns. Maybe with more residents speaking out, the Township will finally believe us.

The next hurdle is fixing the mess they made by taking away parking on 208 Street before the roads were completely done.

Cathy and Peter Morris,

Langley
