Praise for traffic control competency

Hwy 95 work underway between Brisco and Radium

Dear Editor:

The work to improve Highway 95 from Brisco to Radium started a couple of weeks ago and is now well underway. The work that needs to be done will be very extensive and at times very complicated. There will be many delays for motorists travelling that route and quite often pilot vehicles have to be used to guide the motorists to ensure that everything goes smoothly.

I am writing this letter to thank the people who control the traffic and ensure the safety of all concerned. They are on the job at 7 a.m. each morning and are having to work in miserable weather and poor visibility.

I travel this route extensively and am able to see firsthand the high degree of competency of the traffic control people as they do their job.

If you are travelling up that way and are caught up in a delay, give the traffic controllers a “thank you” wave. They deserve it.

Jim Galloway
