We oppose building a through-road linking Pembroke St (Rte 27) to Wapping Rd (Rte 106) as part of the proposed Wapping Road Estates housing development. The intersection on Pembroke St, only 65 feet from Grove St's entrance, would create a substantial traffic danger near Whit's Corner on the second busiest road in Kingston as heavy traffic drives through the residential development and turns left against opposing traffic entering from Grove Street. Nearly all of the reasons given for building the road are to avoid the intersection at Cumberland Farms. The real solution, then, is in fixing that intersection rather than avoiding it and creating two new problem intersections, and a stream of heavy traffic through a new residential development. The alternative is to build the Wapping Estates development as a cul-de-sac with the entrance on Wapping Road.
