As a Steveston resident, and taking a non-partisan view for both pedestrians and drivers, I support the Steveston scramble at Moncton Street and No. 1 Road.
I think that City of Richmond has made a good decision in scrapping the restricted left turns other than when a scramble is happening. The scramble has helped move traffic since its induction. With more publication and notification regarding the rules of this rare intersection, I'm sure accident statistics will subside in the future.
Once they have used it, many have commented on how convenient this type of intersection is, and how it adds to the character of our community. All I can say is job well done!
