LETTER: Include streetlights to Ryan Road hill improvements

Dear editor,

Your recent article by Erin Haluschak on the widening of the walkway on Ryan Road caught my attention. Since the opening of the new hospital and other new stores at the corner of Ryan Road and Lerwick the traffic has increased more and more up and down Ryan Road.

If there is any discussion regarding the expense of the walkway it would only make sense to widen Ryan Road with another lane at the same time and install lighting. During the rainy months in the Comox Valley travelling that stretch of the road is almost blinding with the darkness and the set up of traffic that is coming at you in both directions. It would only make sense to do it now rather than later.

Randy Komar,

Comox
