With the amount of traffic increasing in Kitimat due to construction and expansion of property in the Kildala area, specifically the “intersection” of Lahakas and Quatsino Blvd, there is now a road that goes straight through, an extension of Lahakas.
I have noticed many trucks use this extension and there have been a number of close calls involving traffic at this uncontrolled intersection.
Most recently, a truck proceeding straight through while I was attempting to make a left turn from Quatsino onto Lahakas Blvd.
This intersection has become a hazard to motorists and should be controlled as a three way stop before something more serious happens.
I think it is time that the district address this issue a little more seriously.
I notice on Lahakas Blvd. proceding south there is a newly erected sign that warns of trucks crossing at the intersection, however, this is not enough.
