Buck Flats residents form road users group

Buck Flats residents have established a road users group to bring road issues to the Ministry of Highways.

Structural engineers looked at Buck Bridge One in April and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is looking at how to best tackle bridge maintenance work.

Buck Flats residents have established a road users group to bring road issues to the Ministry of Highways.

Over 50 people from Buck Flats, Houston and Smithers met last week Sunday to discuss various topics, said Rob Newell, meeting facilitator.

At that meeting, 10 people formed the Buck Flats Road Users Group, which will meet regularly to discuss road safety concerns.

Newell says Buck Flats is an interface road, seen as a logging road but controlled by the Ministry, so they have had problems in the past with snow clearance, and large traffic that cannot share the road because of it’s size on the windy road.

Now residents can bring their concerns to the group, who will meet regularly, discuss concerns and contact the Ministry to bring concerns forward, Newell said.

He says Buck Flats residents are also putting together a community bulletin board near the mailboxes, to help communication between residents.
