Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

A turn for the better

  • Print

I am delighted to read about a plan for improving the Perimeter Highway (South Perimeter on NDP rebuilding list, Nov. 27). I would implore the planners to consider immediately improving our commuter safety both eastbound and westbound, near the railway tracks on the south perimeter between St. Anne's Road and Lagimodiere Boulevard, by removing the left-turn opportunity or creating a proper turning lane if possible.

I have witnessed several high-speed collisions at those sites, as drivers currently turn left directly from the highway's passing lane. I would also urge that there be consideration given to buffering the constantly increasing highway noise through better berms or other structures wherever residential areas back onto the Perimeter.

As a longtime Fort Richmond resident, I have been dismayed to experience the exponential increase in road noise in my neighbourhood (try holding a conversation while walking by the river) and fear that with increasing CentrePort traffic volume, spending time outdoors will become a thing of the past. I hope there will be a public meeting at which these concerns might be "heard."

My teeth are grinding at your glaring grammatical error. You state that the Perimeter is the "most busiest" highway. You should have known better than to use this appalling phrase.

Also, how does McPhillips Street intersect the Perimeter twice as shown on the map?
