Call to improve safety of Welland intersection

After a serious crash in Welland on Saturday that saw a 10 year old injured, one local resident decided enough was enough.

Roy Wiley tells the Tribune that's when he decided to launch an online petition demanding a regional review of the intersection at East Main Street/Schisler Road and Moyer Road/Doan's Ridge Road.

While Wiley doesn't have any numbers, he says the intersection is dangerous and has long been the scene of numerous crashes.

Several local city and regional councillors agree that it's time the region review the layout of the intersection.

Welland councillor Bryan Green says he intends to introduce a motion at city council requesting a regional study.
