Those living in the newly developed Hawkstone area in northwest Regina now have another option to get in and out of their neighbourhood.
The city officially opened a connection between Argyle Street North and Rochdale Boulevard this week in what Ward 10 councillor Gerry Flegel says was a great day for his area and the city as a whole.
Flegel says it is important to have another access point in and out of the area in case of an emergency.
More will be done in the area as work will be starting soon north of Rochdale Boulevard that will connect the street to Big Bear Boulevard.
Flegel says the improvements will reduce the bottleneck which occurs on a daily basis at Pasqua and Rochdale.
