Re. Wider bridge suggested (Castanet, Sept, 28)
After reading the article, I had to ask myself what a wider bridge (over Okanagan Lake between Kelowna and West Kelowna) would do.
I remember the old bridge we had, and it was the very same problem. Why is it the bridge's fault if traffic does not move?
What would an extra lane do? All it would do is add a couple dozen more standing places for traffic that the city can't handle.
There are way too many traffic lights (on the Highway 97) and they all have a brain on their own. Why the province refuses to synchronize the lights is beyond me.
How many millions of dollars have been spent for no, or not much, improvement?
If traffic comes to a standstill, it has nothing to do with the bridge.
