COMMENT: Finally, an advance green at Carp and Hazeldean

By Devyn Barrie, StittsvilleCentral, August 2, 2018

After years of safety concerns at the Carp and Hazeldean intersection, the city has finally installed an advance green left turn signal.

But only for traffic turning west onto Hazeldean from Carp Road.

Coun. Shad Qadri shared an update a few weeks back in his newsletter about the new signal, but then issued a clarification: “There was miscommunication between traffic staff and myself and only the advance green travelling West on Hazeldean was activated.”

There will be no light just yet for drivers turning north onto Carp Road because “it does not yet meet the criteria warrants,” Qadri said.

He’ll be tabling a councillor’s report to the Transportation Committee on Aug. 15 to recommend the other signal be installed.
