Letter: Canyon Safety

After reading The Malibu Times in regards to safety on PCH, I cannot believe the City of Malibu would be permitting a project like the one at the bottom of Tuna Canyon — which is steeper and longer than the California Incline.  

After the storms of the last few weeks that closed Topanga Canyon, why has no one in Malibu or Topanga City Council seen the need for Tuna Canyon upkeep? This was the only exit for people who live and commute from Topanga. 

Malibu is responsible for the last half mile at the bottom, which needs much improvement, and is now turning a one-way troubled intersection into a two-way driveway for someone who has deep pockets. I am very happy that we made it through these storms without getting injured. 

When the construction crews park their trucks at the bus stop, or on the south side of the road, there is no way to see the oncoming traffic when we are trying to turn left. It’s very dangerous. 

The bottom of Tuna Canyon needs to be wide enough for emergency fire trucks. Please use some of the $38.3 million dollars for the safety of Tuna Canyon Road.
