Letters: Barrier needs removing

I suppose we should rejoice at council’s decision on April 14  (Sooke News Mirror, April 23) to “be in contact with the Ministry of Transport about removing the “contemptible” (Mrs. Lewers letter in the same paper) barrier at Townsend Road.

But hold your applause. Because way back in July, 2013, the Mirror reported that council “would discuss the problem with the Ministry of Transport.” Surely, some council members must have driven past the ridiculous barrier during the past year to remind them of this commitment.

How many times must poor Mary Brooke bring the matter be up before council for something to be done about this long-standing traffic aberration?
