Potholes Aren't The Only Problem

Potholes aren't the only spring hazards on the roads in Saint John.

Our caustic winter combination of salt and sand has also ground most of the lines off the roads and left-over sand that can result in skidding for walkers and bikers. 

Common councillor Donna Reardon says she thinks an oil-based paint should be permitted for painting the lines on the roads.

Bill Edwards of Transportation and Environment Services says to their knowledge they use the best paints on the market for the job.

Some drivers and pedestrians are complaining without clear lines painted on the road it's much harder to navigate. Once the street-sweeping has been completed, the line-painting trucks can get out there and do their job.
