BROOKFIELD - Construction has started on the installation of traffic lights at the main intersection in Brookfield.
Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal spokesman Steve Smith said Nova Scotia Power installed the poles at Highways 289 and 2 and hardware is on the way. Weather permitting, the department expects the lights to be operational by mid July.
Former Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley MLA Brooke Taylor said the lights are really important to the community. "They will provide a lot of safety for the motorists who negotiate that dangerous intersection," he said.

    Will they put in proper crosswalk signals at the intersection too? I've often had to slam on the breaks because kids from SCA were crossing to the Tim Horton's at lunch time. Stoplights and proper crosswalks would be a big help.

    Kudos to whomever made the decision to do this! If they're a politician, they should be commended for looking after the bread and butter issues that really matter to a community.
