Letter: Weeds taking over traffic islands

Until the city provides dedicated cycling lanes, we must share the road

I am not sure if Argo is still doing the highway maintenance for the Penticton/ Summerland area, but whoever is responsible for keeping the traffic islands weed-free needs to get a crew out there with a couple of weed whackers, or spray, or both.

There are trees growing out of some of them, most are covered in weeds, some standing as high as three feet with flowers blooming on them, they are so big.

The highway crews must drive this daily, and I am wondering why in tarnation nobody had the initiative to bring it to someone’s attention.

Come on guys, show a little pride. It looks like you are coming into a ghost town when approaching Penticton from the south. Get on with the job. I shouldn’t have to write letters of this nature.
