Flooding a national embarrassment?

News Jul 28, 2010 Ancaster News

The flooding of the Red Hill Expressway should be a deal killer for the new East Mountain stadium.

Why spend millions of dollars to build a brand new state-of-the-art facility if fans and athletes can't get there during thunderstorms?

Could you imagine the Red Hill Expressway closed on the day Hamilton hosts the Pan Am Games or a nationally televised CFL Grey Cup Game or, even worse, Pan Am athletes stuck on the Red Hill unable to get to their event.

What a national embarrassment this decision could become. City council needs to find a solution for the constant flooding of the Red Hill before any East Mountain stadium is discussed.
