I saw a great many people narrowly avoiding accident at the Glenmore Trail – Elbow Drive – Macleod Trail – 5th Street nightmare intersection yesterday, again. I was one of them, trying to get from Northbound Elbow to Northbound 5th. Crossing over two lanes of aggressive, fast traffic in half a block is not fun.
Getting from 5th Southbound to Glenmore or Macleod is also fun, given the stupid and stupidly placed signs.
How is it possible that the owners of Chinook Centre were not forced to pay for some major traffic fixes when they got their last two expansions? Or did they pay and the City pissed it away?
Ether the City council pols or the City engineers are useless putzes. The entire traffic mess around Chinook Centre is 100%, entirely, totally, the fault of the City of Calgary.
Heads should roll, but they won’t.
