Concern continues to grow among parents and students in Surrey after a serious pedestrian crash on 96th avenue – where there are no traffic lights.
A serious pedestrian crash leaving two young women in Surrey in serious condition has many questioning why there are is still no traffic signal in the 96th avenue intersection, a year after a request had been put in.
Surrey City Councillor Tom Gill says it’s taking a bit more time because there’s a certain level of engineering that needs to be done too.
“In June of 2014 Council approved additional works to be constructed at that site to permit a signalized crosswalk at that site.”
Gill says in the meantime, an interm crosswalk has been placed at the intersection while the City awaits the construction of the new traffic signal.
