Letter: Poor paving makes more work

Dear Editor,

Is it just me, or does anyone else notice the poor paving jobs these days?

The new interchange area at 56th Avenue and 196th Street area is brutal. It’s uneven, has bumps that make the tires go bang, and that’s not to mention the numerous patches which could have been repaired at the same time.

And who is the genius who loves to put manhole covers etc. right in the line of tire travel?

Then there’s the new bridge, finally open, on 56th Avenue near Langley Secondary School. Who paved the road? I am sure three blind mice could have done a better job, or even my four- and seven-year-old kids.

It’s brutally bad – and why is it curved now?

I guess I should be happy; at least my tax dollars can go towards fixing it, keeping people employed.

Simon Field, Langley
