To: Mayor Rob Keffer, Deputy Mayor- James Leduc,and Councillors: Ward 1 - Raj Sandhu, Ward 2 - Gary Baynes, Ward 3 - Gary Lamb, Ward 4 - Ron Orr, Ward 5 - Peter Ferragine, Ward 6 - Mark Contois, Ward 7 - Peter Dykie Jr to address this issue.
Bradford is a growing community and many residents commute on the GO train (located at Dissette Street). The back up of commuters trying to exit the GO station onto Dissette Street is horrible. The traffic on Dissette Street makes it difficult to turn left or right and can takes anywhere from 2-5 minutes.
There have been near-misses for accidents from traffic turning left onto Dissette Street and cars 'make up' their own turning lane when there is quite a back-up of cars turning right.
It has been communicated by many residents to GO Transit's Customer Service to include a left hand turning lane from the GO onto Dissette Street and a set of traffic lights to ease congestion at the GO Entrance/Exit at Dissette Street. GO Transithasadvised that this is a town issue as it is the town's property.
The Resident's of Bradford would like the new council toadd street lights and aleft turn lane.
