MOCNTON, N.B. — The City of Moncton has plans to ease some of the traffic congestion in the fast-developing north end, but the tricky part will lie in implementation.
“It’s hard to tell what’s the best thing to do — we could be moving the problem from one place to another,” says Ward 3 Councilor George Leblanc.
Thus far, the city’s 2002 capital works budget includes $100,000 to spend on Trinity Drive.
Funds are tentatively set aside to extend Frampton Lane to Mapleton Road. The project would be done in 2003 at a cost of $250,000.
As well, Mapleton Road north of Trinity Drive will tentatively be widened and improved in 2004 at a cost of $750,000.
Daily traffic on Mountain Road near the Wheeler Boulevard overpass is 28,000 vehicles while the daily traffic on Mapleton Road adjacent to where Frampton would intersect is 9,400 vehicles.
