Don’t blaze these trails

Why did taxpayers pay for the paving of a bicycle lane on 80 Avenue if it isn’t safe as Surrey’s manager of transportation Jaime Boan says?

Re: “Taking a stand against a new trail,” The Leader, Oct. 11.

I don’t see the need to pave the FortisBC right-of-way.

Homeowners already endure restrictions on what we can build and plant on our properties next to right-of-ways.

Why did taxpayers pay for the paving of a bicycle lane on 80 Avenue if it isn’t safe as Surrey’s manager of transportation Jaime Boan states in your article?

Paving the FortisBC path would create a situation where my home would in essence be sandwiched between two streets, front and back, and my home would be more vulnerable to crime.

I suggest those not wanting to travel on the grass pathway, take the sidewalks and bicycle paths our tax dollars have already paid for.
