Letter to the Editor: Leave Bloomfield Road alone

Thursday, June 2, 2011

This is in regards to the destruction of Bloomfield Road. Do we need yet another speedway? Aren't the speeders catered to enough in Cape? This is one of the most beautiful roadways here. All that needs to be done is to strictly enforce a speed limit. But if the powers that be say it needs to go, it will be done. Never mind what the rest of us want. Visit the East Coast sometime. There, they preserve beauty. Here, we destroy it at an alarming rate. Once those beautiful old trees are cut, it will take years to replace them. Please, I beg you, leave Bloomfield Road alone!
