The new road is a 1950's solution to 2007 problems. If this and other roads were 'not meant to be used for going from exit to exit', what were they meant for? We can't regulate how drivers use any road, nor how far they intend to drive on it. East Hamilton's already dismal rates of respiratory illness will only increase. Today's Spectator article, extolling the predicted economic benefits, all involve suburbs & sprawl; only limited benefits to the immediately flanking areas of Barton East and Nash Road are mentioned. The urban core of the city is our main problem. It needs revitalization, stimulation and vision. The Red Hill Valley Expressway will allow business to skirt Hamilton entirely: out of sight, out of mind.
