Road work moving slower than evolution

MONCTON, N.B. -- Moncton residents fed up with traffic problems on Trinity Drive might have to wait for a solution.


MONCTON, N.B. — Moncton residents fed up with traffic problems on Trinity Drive might have to wait for a solution.

City council had set aside $100,000 in the budget to improve traffic flow around the Power Centre shopping complex, but the money might not be spent this year.

“Even though the funding is approved, it’s possible it won’t happen this year,” says Bruce Tait, a project engineer in the city’s engineering department.

The main reason he says is that the Power Centre is still evolving.

The city is hesitant to address the traffic issues before knowing exactly what it’s dealing with.

“We don’t want to do something that might have to be undone,” says Tait. “You want to make sure what you do fits the present or intended use. That’s hard to do when you have large parcels of land yet to be divided up.”
