Roundabouts would improve safety

The two intersections where Windsor Road meets Newport Avenue and then Beach Drive, have long been a safety hazard

The two intersections where Windsor Road meets Newport Avenue and then Beach Drive, have long been a safety hazard to the local residents.

In order to improve safety, and to significantly improve help and traffic flow for both tourists and residents alike, it has been proposed that two small roundabouts be created, with a comprehensive set of signs.

The roundabouts are named after the two hotels which used to stand in the vicinity.

Roundabout No. 1: Rudyard Kipling Roundabout is at the site of old New Oak Bay Hotel and now Rudyard Kipling Apartments. Roundabout No. 2: Mount Baker Roundabout is close to site of the old Mount Baker Hotel (Dorchester).

Feedback from the public is appreciated. Support is even more appreciated.
