LETTER: Qualicum Beach intersection design is all wet

Not sure why several hundred thousand dollars was spent on landscaping at West Crescent and Memorial Ave in Qualicum Beach, AKA The Heffelump Trap.

With the recent overflow of the trap last weekend, you wonder who was paid to calculate the inflow to the outflow.

There appears to be no improvement to the previously bad design of the intersection.

Without mentioning other botched portions of the intersection and bike lane/sidewalk north to the beach, I believe a four-way stop would have cost taxpayers less than one per cent of what was spent to improve the safety of pedestrians and traffic.
