Town officials in Port Hawkesbury will conduct a traffic study on Granville St.
Councillors discussed their concerns- and the concerns of residents and business owners on Granville St.- at November’s regular town council meeting Tuesday night.
After the meeting, Brenda Chisholm-Beaton, the town’s mayor, said they want to reduce the amount of speeding on Granville.
“Because there (are) no stop signs, it’s very easy to use Granville St. as a through-way to Point Tupper or Hwy. 4A,” she said. “That’s precisely what’s happening.”
Chisholm-Beaton said speeding is a major concern, because of the large number of bus stops on that street, and she assumes three-way stop signs will be one of the solutions.
She said step one of their process will be giving residents and business owners on or near Granville the opportunity to talk to town officials.
