    How are people going to cross the street to go to superfoods. Its bad enough with a light. Trying to cross when you have cars zipping around from all directions, don't see how that will work

    They really should not be crossing there. It is WAY too dangerous!

    they need a flyover walkway

    the highway dept, the hotel tax and the supermarket should all kick in to fund it.

    That would be ideal. Is there anything like that on the island now? I can't think of any.

    i may be wrong, but i think there is one of those pedestrian flyover walkways on the newly expanded road on the way to Savanetta.

    i really do believe that there should be some cost sharing with something like that.

    I miss that red light maybe once every 7 times through the intersection. It seems to go from green to red without yellow. it isnít nearly as bad as some other intersections.

    I agree. Iíve missed the left turn due to pedestrians or tourists crossing at wrong times.

    If there was to be a bridge, should it be north-south or east-west and on which sides of the intersection? In planning and approving the budget for the roundabout a bridge should be factored in. The lights are confusing and this year I have seen a lot of V plates cruising through what they obviously think is green for them, when it is green for turning traffic
