There was no need to connect Arbutus Road to Northwest Bay Road just because 18 new homes are being built at Parkhurst Place.
Those residents could use the intersection at Arbutus and Hwy 19A, just like all residents on Arbutus have been doing for years.
Since someone decided this connection was necessary, all they had to do was place one stop sign on Northwest Bay, for residents coming from Arbutus. There was no need to install another stop sign on Northwest Bay for the thousands of residents going into town from Craig Bay and Nanoose.
Perhaps if Parksville’s traffic engineering were to use traffic counters to determine the number of vehicles using each route, they would not have ended up inconveniencing thousands of motorists to satisfy a few motorists.
