The right decision
I would like to comment about letter writer Derek Coughtrey’s comment that you have to go King George Boulevard to get into Safeway now. (“Engineering some poor road decisions,” Letters, The Leader, Oct. 15).
That is wrong. You can still access Safeway off 104 Avenue, just go past the light and there is an entrance right there off 104 Avenue. It has always been there, but no one ever used it as they got used to the one off of City Parkway.
I use it all the time and I am glad the city put the meridian there. In my opinion it was a great idea; the city did something right for a change.
Also, regarding the light in front of the medical building, I am grateful they put it there. Elderly people and pedestrians use that light. Drivers never stopped for pedestrians there. We are lucky no one got killed. Even today, with the light, there are drivers who run it.
Thank you City of Surrey engineering department for putting the light there. It was sorely needed for a long time. You can actually get off of City Parkway now instead of taking your life in your hands with the 104 Avenue traffic having the right of way.
