Letter: 216th cloverleaf welcomed

I agree that a proper cloverleaf is needed at 216th Street.

Dear Editor,

I agree that a proper cloverleaf is needed at 216th Street.

I believe that when the #1 Highway was opened in 1964, land was made available for such an expansion at 216 sometime in the future. This is a matter for the provincial government.

My suggestion is meant to address congestion issues here and now, not defer a solution until an unknown time in the future.

If the mayor’s innovative thinking is realized, the 208th Street overpass is widened and a deal struck with the province for access to the freeway, it will prove a greater benefit to all residents not just the ones having trouble crossing over the freeway.

There are three ways over Highway 1 (200th Street, 208th Street and Glover Road); whereas all seeking access to Highway 1 (from the most populated corridors of Walnut Grove and Willoughby) have only 200th Street.

Bruce Jones, Langley
