Letter: New paint needed in Estevan crosswalk

Send your letters to editor@oakbaynews.com

Brian Davis’ letter regarding the existing critical problem of the crosswalk on Granite Street even prior to the proposed development got my attention.

If this is the forum where we can alert others to dangerous crosswalks, I’d like to add my least favourite; one my children navigate twice daily at Kinross Avenue and Eastdowne Road.

As you can see Oak Bay public works forgot to re-paint it this fall, and so it is very poorly marked. Yes, I’ve called to inquire when they might get to it. They need a few dry days, which, as you know, might be weeks or even months from now. If your children, parents or you cross here too, might you take the time to call and add your request to mine?
