Gas station site 'will create another traffic disaster'

to the editor,

Posted December 4, 2017

Regarding the Alliston gas station proposal to the OMB, just take a look at the Canadian Tire gas bar to see why gas stations should not be located in such small areas.

Traffic is congested entering and exiting the station and the layout is not designed for the number of cars trying to line up.

Although we desperately needed a station at the west end of Alliston, it should have been built at the Canadian Tire parking lot and not at a narrow strip mall.

This new proposal for a station across from the Dairy Queen will create another traffic disaster. The intersection of King and Victoria is a major intersection requiring clear sight-lines and a free flow of traffic.

Cars entering and exiting the station will cause major disruptions. And imagine what will happen when when a gas tanker needs to get in to fill the tanks.

The Shell station in Cookstown is a good example of why not to build a gas station at a major intersection.

Steve Jones,
Alliston
