Halton Hills council approved Ward 2 Councillor Joan Robson's motion to study the Erin and Credit Sts. intersection in Glen Williams with the possibility of making it an all-way stop. Robson said there is a considerable increase in traffic shortcutting via Wildwood, Erin and Alexander Sts. to connect with Confederation St. to avoid the Wildwood, Main and Confederation Sts. intersection. She described the neighbourhood as families with small children and said people drive down the road at considerable speed to avoid the lineups at the four-way stop at Wildwood, Confederation and Main St. intersection. "The creation of a four-way stop rather than a two-way stop is done in the hope of drawing the attention of the drivers in that area," said Robson. Her ward-mate Bryan Lewis agreed that this is a spin-off of Wildwood Rd. being used by traffic coming from outside the area and now traffic is running the back roads. He said four-way stops have been proven to slow traffic down and increases safety. The Engineering department will study the intersection with the possibility of adding east-west stop signs, effectively making the intersection a four-way stop.
