Pierrefonds-Roxboro to upgrade major intersection to improve traffic flow

Starting in April, the corner of Pitfield and Thimens will be getting a facelift of sorts in the form of new traffic lights. The merging lanes will also be made wider for drivers.

“We were successful in obtaining the permission from the Minister of Transport,” said Pierrefonds-Roxboro Mayor Jim Beis.

“It will evaluated in terms of the impact it has in the area.”

The upgrade, Beis says, will help with traffic flow. “We required a free flow of traffic in this area that would that not only help the commuters on the bus but also the people that are often caught in traffic,” he said.
