Letters: Engineering department making things safer

Letter writer is pleased with safety measures at Saseenos

A hand of applause to Mr. Al Fontes of the Engineering Department, District of Sooke, who made arrangements with BC Transit to have a bus shelter installed at Kaltasin Road Park and Ride, an encouragement to the commuters who bravely left their car keys at home in order to go green.

Also, I want to thank Mr. Al Fontes and the Ministry of Transportation for installing a pedestrian traffic light at the Saseenos Elementary School crosswalk.  The traffic light will make safer for students, parents, pedestrians and commuters crossing the high traffic Sooke Road.

Attention drivers the pedestrian traffic light at Saseenos Elementary School is also to be respected for pedestrians crossing Sooke Road at any time of the day and the week.  Please slow down and watch the speed limit.

Season’s Greetings,

Beatriz Vajgel

Sooke
