Traffic corner a hazard in Kitimat

A reader expresses his concern regarding the corner of Quatsino and Lahakas Boulevard.

Dear sir,

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.
