MARYSTOWN, N.L. —

Motorists in Marystown will be pleased to learn there is an end in sight for issues plaguing the traffic lights at the intersection of McGettigan Boulevard, Columbia Drive and Penny Street.

During a recent meeting, Coun. Keith Keating announced a new controller has been ordered.

“We hope to have it by the weekend,” he told council on March 12.

Deputy Mayor Gary Myles, who chaired the meeting because wMayor Sam was Synard absent, said he would like to thank the residents of the town for their patience.

“The unit was totally fried and being an old system you can’t just go down to Wal-Mart and buy one … but thanks to the fast work of the public works department and the administrative staff here … we should have it in our hands by the weekend and installed by the early part of next week.”

The unit for the traffic lights cost $18,945, tax included, and installation of the part will cost an additional $3,433.72, tax included.
