The Spectator reports that an $18 million arterial road is planned for construction in 2014:
Guy Paparella, the city's director of industrial parks and airport development, said the new two-kilometre, four-lane arterial road will run from the foot of the Red Hill Valley Parkway ramp at Stone Church Road, almost due south across Highland Road where it will connect to Rymal Road just west of Trinity Church Road.
The new road, which has yet to be named, is expected to take some of the traffic off upper Centennial Parkway and Dartnall Road as well as serve as a catalyst for future development at the nearby industrial park.
Why do residents have to launch a multi-year campaign and gather hundreds of signatures for a $80,000 pedestrian crossing - which is then denied by the traffic department, and has to be forced through a Council vote - while an $18 million road for future expansion just appears?
Who asked for this road? How did it get into the 2006 Rymal Road Planning Area Document?
