Duck Creek Bridge important to town safety

A reader responds to the potential of a back-country bridge closing.

Dear Sir,

In regard to the article of October 31st about the council being unable to decide what to do about the Duck Creek bridge: Seriously?!

We have no way out of this town if our highway bottlenecks for whatever reason-like trying to escape from a tsunami warning.

If Kitimat council can up with money to support Shames Mountain couldn’t they come up with money that may actually help our own community?

It is a great concern to many people that we have no alternate way out of here.  Shouldn’t we be making this a priority?

That back road is in horrible shape but don’t make it completely inaccessible-it may save someone one day since there doesn’t appear to be any other road in the works.

Thank you.

T. Berndt
