Mess for scooters

I am sending these words concerning the round-about they are building. It might be good when it is finished, but now it is a big mess.The cars could get out of Evergreen Centre but how about the people who are walking and riding scooters like I am?The sidewalk is closed when you are coming from town-side and the sidewalk that was where the loggers’ pole used to be is gone. Yes, you can go up on the road and up to the entrance to Evergreen, but what about the people who are walking. I cannot drive my scooter on the road and I would not want to with all the traffic on the road.A couple of days ago you could go where the gas station used to be, but now they have the fence up and there is no way about going that way.Another thing the powers-that-be should look at are the poles with the walk signals on them. The ones crossing Otter Point to go to Peoples Drug Mart, the only way you can get to it is to hit the pole and then back up and get to the sidewalk. If you go to the right pole you have to drive over two drains. If you are coming down Sooke Road from the Bank of Commerce to get to Murray Road, the pole is too far away to reach it. Yes, they have a little bit of tarmac to get to the pole, but if you’re driving a scooter you have to get off and do the pole. And when you get closer to Wiskers and Waggs you have to ride a little way down Murray Road and then turn around so you can get to Sooke Road to go up Otter Point.I know that does not bother a lot of us, but you have to think about everyone — even older people.Betty PatersonSooke
