Cornwall Ontario – Over $2M for not one, but two roundabouts in Long Sault Ontario highlighted why most of their council, and those that voted for it via the United Counties of SD&G, should not be trusted with cutlery, never mind an elected seat, after not one, but two fatal accidents closed the 401 Eastbound for most of Friday.
South Stormont Mayor, and Zombie, Jim Bancroft was warden for the Counties when this insanity was passed.
Ironically, the roundabouts will be what his term of council will be remembered for, going in circles and raising taxes.
If an ambulance had to use Highway Two they would have to slow down and navigate both roundabouts and of course trucks would turn them into a nightmare as well.
One local posted on social media:
Highway shut down for 24hrs and EDR route in effect through Long Sault.. I BET two 2.2 million dollar THOSE TRAFFIC CIRCLES will help move traffic faster.
One source shared with CFN that whoever pushed for this project should be fired and run out of town!
Another shared that if the purpose of the roundabouts was to slow down traffic it was a waste of money as the very visible OPP station does that tickety boo.
Yet another two reasons not to drive through or even near South Stormont.
What do you think dear CFN viewers? Was it sheer insanity (or corruption) two build the roundabouts in Long Sault?
