LETTERS: View Royal traffic calming impact’s others

I was wondering whether View Royal council consulted with Saanich regarding this proposed traffic calming in the area of the new Eagle Creek Village development.

As a frequent user of Wilkinson/Helmcken roads during all hours of the day, I am more concerned than ever that the intersection at Wilkinson, Interurban Road and Hastings Street will become even more congested.

On an everyday basis the traffic is backed up from Glyn Road to Interurban.  It has taken me upwards to 20 min to get through this intersection.

Mayor Hill’s comments lead me to believe that he has never experienced this traffic jam, as he must be sitting in his office at View Royal Municipal Hall making these decisions.

Here is another reason for amalgamation, as one municipality makes decisions that impact another municipality.
