Re: No new pavement for Gabriola.

Tuesday, November 15 2016

Responding to the letter in the November 8 Sounder.
I lived on Gabriola for 11 years. North and South road was bad then, but now it’s just plain disgraceful. North and South road is a main thoroughfare and is, therefore, the major artery for the island. In the summer months the population swells and the road becomes dangerous not just for motorists, but pedestrians, cyclists and emergency vehicles. After living in Nanaimo for over two years, I can honestly say that in Nanaimo’s rural areas I have never come across such badly maintained roads. I encourage Gabriolans to make this problem a major issue for your island.
