The construction zone in Hampstead actually begins in Cote Saint-Luc even though none of the actual work is taking place in Cote Saint-Luc. This Photo of the Week shows the backup at Fleet Road and Pinedale Ave in CSL a few meters to the west of Hampstead. CSL Public Security was on scene with Agent Anthony Labattaglia (in lime green vest) dutifully waving motorists through the intersection to clear the bottleneck. Some mornings the traffic backs up all the way to Cavendish Blvd.
Fortunately, CSLers have been a patient lot, putting up with the frustration of slow-moving traffic tie ups. The work is more than half over now and one can only hope that smoother sailing, and roads, lie ahead.
While tempers flared for the BMW driver (see post just below) in Hampstead who mouthed off at a truck driver who happened to catch her childlike tantrum on his dashboard video recorder, garnering hundreds of thousands of hits in two days on YouTube, no such outbursts (thankfully) have been reported in CSL.
