Waste of money on round­abouts

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

While the Premier and gov­ern­ment con­tinue to build round­abouts (18 now I be­lieve), most other road is­sues go unat­tended (ex­cept for the premier’s road of course). The money that has been spent on the by­pass, which now has three round­abouts, was ex­pen­sive to say the least.

The waste of the tax­pay­ers’ money on this project makes no sense at all. The so-called by­pass has noth­ing to do with the real by­pass route. The present by­pass ends near the water and un­til we can af­ford a bridge across we are us­ing this stop­gap route. The old ex­ist­ing route was never ideal, but it worked and would have suf­ficed un­til we could ac­tu­ally af­ford to com­plete the real by­pass.

Why didn’t the gov­ern­ment save the cost of this project and put the money saved to­ward the real by­pass bridge?
