WEST VANCOUVER, B.C. — A West Vancouver city councillor is making a pitch to line the area’s highways with more road signs to help direct truckers and motorists.
Coun. John Clark is appalled at the lack of highway signs in the area, alerting drivers to service stations, hotels and other services.
As Chamber of Commerce president in 1997, Clark complained to the Ministry of Highways about the lack of signs, but little was done to rectify the problem. Now he’s calling upon his fellow councillors to get something done.
“My feeling is that in other parts of the province there are signs indicating goods and services available. To see the business district signage in West Vancouver you actually have to be in the city,” Clark tells local media. He adds that millions of vehicles travel the Upper Levels Highway, many of them trucks.
Specifically, he would like to see signage at Hwy. turnoffs at 15th, 21st and Caulfield. He would also like to see more signs directing traffic to the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal. But he notes that the provincial Ministry of Highways must give the go-ahead before anything can be done to make West Vancouver more driver-friendly.
