District of Clearwater recently received a letter from BCAA Road Safety Foundation, saying that one of the roads in the municipality has been identified as needing improvement in the British Columbia Automobile Association’s most recent annual Worst Roads Survey.
The road identified was Park Drive at the Highway 5 intersection. The problem cited was traffic congestion. There was only one vote recorded.
Mayor John Harwood commented that it only took one vote to make it into the survey.
“Can we say that we built a roundabout?” asked councillor Merlin Blackwell.
Westside Road in West Kelowna topped the survey as the worst stretch of road in the province for the second year in a row – despite recent improvements. Major complaint was potholes and crumbling pavement.
BC Parkway, a bike path in Vancouver, came second, while the George Massey Tunnel in Richmond came third.
Results of the survey were released last June.
