How about a deluxe roundelex?

There has been a fair deal of talk about projects that are questionable and perhaps just a way to spend our tax dollars in Qualicum Beach.

There has been a fair deal of talk about projects that are questionable and perhaps just a way to spend our tax dollars in Qualicum Beach.

I note the debate on two proposed roundabouts, a waterfront revitalization/pier and a cruise ship terminal, as well we have some white elephants such as the old school bus building, (acquired at great expense) and the soon-to-be-retired old fire hall, (which received significant dollars in recent renovations and additions).

Both locations will no doubt suck up more funding. And then we have the flashing light crosswalk signage on Village Way, which I have yet to see working.

So here is a brilliant idea. The subject property is on a grade; what about a multi-lane helix/spiral roundabout, partially underground at Memorial and Village Way? This could cost us significant tax dollars in not only construction costs and property acquisitions, but the preliminary design fees are minimal.

A very innovative and first of its kind project might be the ticket. We could call it a roundelex?
