Dear Editor,

In response to the January 6th article about Mainroad CEO visits East Kootenay in wake of complaints: I have been meaning to write and complain for some time about winter road clearing and care in this immediate area of the RDEK.

I drive the Panorama Road daily. It is not cleared on a timely basis after a snowfall and it does not receive adequate sanding at all.

Access to Lower Lakeview Road from Athalmer Road is a hazard all winter long, in spite of two vehicles going over the embankment last winter, including a tow vehicle.

Access to lower Baltac is also a hazard all winter long.

These reflect my personal experiences on roads in this area and I hope that some more attention be paid to provide the public with safer conditions.

Richard Unger
