Angle of parkway curve is part of the problem
RE: Accidents on the RHVP
One serious design flaw in the Red Hill Valley Parkway/ Lincoln Alexander Parkway that no one seems to have picked up on is the abrupt change in radius of the curve at the top of the upbound RHVP, located approximately by Pritchard Road, that spot marked with 209 accidents on a map published in the Spec a few weeks ago. This change requires a significant correction of vehicle steering angle, which if not observed can cause a vehicle to enter the lane to the left with serious results if drivers are not paying attention. At night, and especially during adverse weather conditions, this is an especially dangerous situation.
This flaw could easily be corrected when this area of the parkways are resurfaced and new lines painted. Dots added with the new lane markings at would also be advised for poor weather conditions. Peter Reisiger, Hamilton
