Driving just got sager

New advance left turn signals at the intersection of Highway 97 and Beaver Lake/Glemore Road will increase safety for motorists say local politicians.

Drivers who pass through the intersection frequently know that it is a busy one and has been the site of more than one accident in the past.

Baker says that eventually the municipality wants to bring traffic into the town centre area several hundred metres south of the intersection at Beaver Lake Road. A project on the scale is likely decades away and in the meantime Baker expects the new left turn signals to improve safety at the intersection.

“The new left turns signals will make a real difference for Lake Country drivers. The District appreciates the partnership with ICBC and the provincial government in this project, which has been anticipated for quite some time.”

MLA Norm Letnick agrees with Baker.

“Improving public safety is an ongoing priority for this government. Sometimes, projects as simple as the installation of turn signals can make the greatest difference.
