Courtenay roundabout sounds like great idea

Dear editor,

Re: Roundabout at the corner of Ryan and Lerwick.

I am glad that Mr. Watkins who wrote another well-written letter about  the roundabout and others who wrote, too, and phoned  me agree, that this matter deserves a competent engineer who can make it work.

I can see the change done easily in three weeks at very little cost.

First week — the southeast corner at Thrifty Foods. Enlarge the space/curve by about three metres – gain more space. The traffic would be affected very little.

Second week — do the same space-gaining change at the northeast corner at Home Depot.

Third week — do the same at the northwest corner at NIC and then find the centre of this enlarged  intersection — likely a bit east from the present.

Next — bring large pots with small trees overnight and place them in the circle (size to be determined ) around this centre. Turn the lights off, paint some lines and put out warning signs. Functioning roundabout is finished.

Finishing touches on the island can be done at later date.

G. Novak,

Comox
