Wilson Raises Questions About Hwy 89 Warning Light(Alliston - November 30, 2007) - Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson expressed concern today about a traffic warning light that is being installed by the Ministry of Transportation at the entrance to the Nottawasaga Inn on Highway 89.
Wilson said MTO is beginning to install a warning light that would alert drivers travelling on Highway 89 that a vehicle is preparing to turn left out of the Nottawasaga Inn. The local MPP maintains that the only way to truly solve the traffic issue on Highway 89 is to install traffic signals.
"While I'm pleased that the McGuinty Government is responding to my repeated requests to address traffic issues at this intersection, I don't believe a flashing light will do the trick," said Wilson. "MTO seems to want to do everything but install badly needed traffic lights."
Wilson committed to raising the issue with newly appointed Transportation Minister Jim Bradley. "Minister Bradley is a reasonable person and I think he will agree that this is a costly measure that will do very little," he said.
