Chelsea group calls for safer roads
A Chelsea residents association is calling for more and better crosswalk signage in the centre village in a new report.
The Chelsea Ward 2 Residents Association and Chelsea SAFE conducted its own study of 20 crosswalks along Old Chelsea Road, Kingsmere Road near Old Chelsea, Scott Road, and part of Hwy 105 and found problems with most of them.
Association founder and administrator Jacques Michaud said the group began working on the study – which consisted of walking the roads, documenting the features of each crossing, and taking photos of the crosswalks – in response to the increased residential and construction traffic in the centre village due to new developments.
“We tried to identify quick fixes that can be done without spending much money,” Michaud said.
