With regard to the recent letters from Jim Gillis and Randy Komar about Ryan Road pedestrian accessibility, I concur.
But there is another road in the area which is very dangerous: Condensory Road northwards from the Puntledge River Bridge to almost Cessford Road. The One-Spot Trail is excellent, but does not extend to the bridge.
Condensory Road is very narrow with no shoulder to speak of. Power poles are literally three feet from the pavement. There are no street lights. There are two sharp corners to negotiate. Cyclists and pedestrians use this road frequently. There is no place for them to be, except on the pavement. Traffic has to pull into the opposite lane to go around them. Speed limit is 60 km/h along here, but I have been passed at high speed by vehicles on several recent occasions.
Traffic has greatly increased on Condensory Road since the new Tsolum River Bridge was opened, as many people access Piercy Road by this route. I understand that the Komox First Nation owns the land on both sides of the road, but is this an issue? Surely they do not want anyone killed by motor vehicles. It is time for the regional district and the province (and maybe the feds) to get moving on this, before someone is killed.
