Old problems but no solutions
RE: A civil engineer looks at Hamilton’s LRT (April 24)
Forgive me if I eyeroll at Carl Turkstra’s opinion piece, as all it seems to do is regurgitate well-known and welldiscussed traffic issues which will undoubtedly arise with implementation of LRT without proposing or even suggesting any possible solutions. His use of extreme hyperbole in stating that “visitors will be traumatized” and that “[t]his can only have serious negative effects on attendance” at our civic destinations serves only to fan the flames of discord, which is both unwelcome and unnecessary.
I expected far more from a P. Eng. with a PhD than that which normally comes from the most vociferous anti-LRTite. It’s easy to find problems with any idea; it’s hard work to find solutions. I guess Doctor Turkstra isn’t up to the challenge. Brendan Tait, Hamilton
