Stupid Centennial Parkway

I'm slowing down a bit on blogging for about the next week or so while I get settled into the routine of office work again. But I do have a beef for today.

Why aren't all the accesses up and down the Escarpment in Hamilton four-laned? This morning, Centennial was closed due to an early morning accident and as I write these words is still closed. All the other accesses -- from the windying Fifty Road to the 403 -- were bumper to bumper. The still under construction Red Hill might have eased the pain but the that's not the point. We need better public transit in Hamilton, but we need better and safer roads too, roads that can handle overflows for unexpected situations.
