Two traffic safety measures got rolling at Tuesday night’s Timmins council meeting.
As promised last month, Councillor Cory Robin asked for a study into whether the three-way stop at Mountjoy St. and Vimy Ave. from last summer’s construction detour should be put back permanently.
He declined support to decide to just put the signs back right away. He said although he and a large number of his neighbours in the area want it… he wants an administration report into whether it’s warranted.
And Councillor John Curley got support for a radar speed monitoring device on King St. in Porcupine – the highway coming in from the east. He says the westbound one coming into South Porcupine is effective in slowing traffic. He’s worried how vehicles speed up on King St., when it widens to four lanes. Traffic there moves past a school crossing and the Porcupine post office.
