Better amenities needed on Sooke Road

I wholeheartedly agree with all Kristi Davis had to say her letters regarding sidewalks and covered bus stops on Sooke Road.

I even suggest a bus stop would be a step in the right direction. The bus stop opposite Slegg Lumber is the last one until Awsworth Road and Yorkshire Place which must be two kilometres at least.

At the west end of Dewdney Flats there is a bus stop going into Victoria, but no corresponding bus stop when coming back from Victoria, (Note that this section is a four lane highway).

If the idea is to keep more cars off the roads please provide the amenities to do so.
