Lots of complaints on the radio, and letters in the paper recently complaining about roadworks in ?View Royal? bunging up the works and turning the Crawl into a Metchosin Marathon.
My inclination would be to do nothing about it (even if the current congestion was a permanent phenomenon - which it isn't), and let 'economics' take its course: fed-up people would find other/faster ways of doing business by telecommuting, finding another job, moving, riding transit, bicycles, or carpooling etc..
However, you'd think with a little extra thought, planning, and construction, it would be reasonably simple to put in a counterflow lane on Hwy 1, and run three lanes with the rush, and one against, on a temporary basis until the construction issues are resolved. No left turns at Mackenzie or Tillicum off the highway.
Say, what's that mountain goat doing up here in the mist?
