LETTER: St. Albert Trail more like 'NASCAR Trail'

'Something must be done to reduce the noise and the speed of these vehicles or construct a noise-barrier wall similar to the one which was built on the east side of the highway not so long ago.'
letter-sta

For the past eight months, 18 hours a day, seven days a week, the southbound stretch of the St. Albert Trail from St. Anne Street and Sturgeon Road (downtown) to Green Grove Drive (Fountain Tire) becomes a race track.

It's a delirious cacophony of roaring motor bikes, screeching sports cars, back-firing exhausts, banging, thundering, screaming, howling engines all day and into the night doing a minimum of 120 km/hr.

No doubt this will continue until the snow falls. It's becoming unbearable to those of us who live in condominiums on the west side of that stretch of the highway and face the St. Albert Trail.

Something must be done to reduce the noise and the speed of these vehicles or construct a noise-barrier wall similar to the one which was built on the east side of the highway not so long ago.

A.M. McGinn, St. Albert
