Yet again I saw on the news another politician spouting off the same old argument against an interchange at McKenzie Avenue and the Trans-Canada Highway.
They argued that an interchange would simply move the problem to Tillicum Road. No wonder these politicians can’t balance a budget — they can’t do math.
Twice the amount of traffic flows through McKenzie than Tillicum because half of the vehicles turn left to head toward the Pat Bay Highway.
I’m not saying there wouldn’t be a backup at Tillicum, but the problem would be much less there than it currently is at McKenzie.
And a great deal of the problem at Tillicum would disappear if Dockyard employees knew they wouldn’t have to wait at the left turn on Admirals Road.
Maybe the politicians should stand on the corner for a little while and practise counting if they want to be able to count our votes.
