There will need to be a Beacon crossing

As the plans are being finalized for a pedestrian overpass, can protection from the weather be added for pedestrians and scooter users?

In my letter printed in the PNR on July 16, I suggested the land to be developed by the Airport Authority and Sidney could have an indoor, all-year-round Farmers’ Market, similar to Vancouver’s Granville Island Market, linked to Sidney by a covered, pedestrian overpass.

As the plans are being finalized for a pedestrian overpass, can protection from the weather be added for pedestrians and scooter users?

Once the market is opened on the south-west corner of Beacon Avenue, there will need to be a branch across Beacon Avenue.

Perhaps this can be built in the original construction of the overpass?

It’s never as cheap as it is today.
