Re: Sidewalks get a frosty welcome (News, May 23)
Count yourselves lucky.
I live on the west side of Sidney and I wrote to council in October 2011 regarding the lack of sidewalks on Galaran Road and Beacon Avenue West, a very busy area that has over the years quietly changed from residential zoning to industrial making this a very busy area with many larger trucks using these roads and people walking to and from work from the bus stop.
The response from council was, and I quote:
“The Town of Sidney’s infrastructure plans for road improvements identifies the construction of a concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk along the east side of Galaran Road from Beacon Avenue West to Henry Avenue West, in conjunction with the road reconstruction and resurfacing work, scheduled for 2023.”
Does this make sense to anyone?
