Families of crash victims, consultant behind friction report among applicants at RHVP inquiry

Excerpt from CBC News

The inquiry was launched after the city revealed a 2013 Tradewind Scientific that found the asphalt friction on some sections of the parkway fell well below UK safety standards.

A year ago, city council said it hadn’t seen the report. Officials said it was found in a locked computer folder after a new director of engineering was hired.

Golder says the report was brought up in multiple meetings over the years, along with safety recommendations.

The safety of the highway has been an issue in recent years. Several families of people injured or killed there have insisted the highway is unsafe. Some are suing the city now.

Robert Hooper, the lawyer representing 200-250 parties involved in a class action suit, also made submissions Friday.

“You will hear from our group that there are certain similarities … that all of the accidents have in common,” he said.
