West Hants to install emergency gate access between The Crossing and Windsor’s Underwood Drive subdivision
West Hants council is looking to install an emergency access gate in an area that straddles the Windsor and West Hants boundary line — and they’re doing so with, or without, Windsor’s blessing.
West Hants Warden Abraham Zebian broached the subject Nov. 27 at the committee of the whole meeting. He said it was high time the situation was dealt with.
“It’s just a sore spot in our area and I’d like to see it corrected and so would our residents,” said Zebian.
The area in question is a small strip of land located between the retirement community in Garlands Crossing and the Underwood Drive subdivision in Windsor.
The seniors’ community, known as The Crossing, has one way in and one way out. Residents there are concerned that if the road ever becomes blocked and there’s an emergency, they won’t be able to leave and the consequences could be dire.
