Missing flaggers last season will not be a recurrence in the coming year

Radium Hot Springs Council assured of consistent traffic flagging for next season

With a disappointing turnout for flaggers at a four-way stop along Highway 93/95 in the Village of Radium Hot Springs during high season of this summer and deficiencies in flagger performance noted by Radium mayor and council back in May regarding long weekend traffic, progress has been made on the issue.

The Pioneer reported back in June on the issue, noting that the May long weekend had a heavy increase in traffic volume but was lacking in the flagger support promised by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

This coming high season, things will be different, and conditions have already improved according to Mayor Clara Reinhardt who told the Pioneer that she has been assured by the area manager that flaggers will be present.

“Since then we’ve had two meetings with the area manager and they are back on flaggers every weekend and special event and they are actively flagging even if there’s no cars because we don’t want to run into the problem we did last time. We are satisfied with the flagger performance so far and with the Ministry of Transportation. They have been very responsive,” said Mrs. Reinhardt.
