Corner Brook man says Rosedale Street is ‘not fit’ for travel | Provincial | News

Greg White has lived on Rosedale Street in Corner Brook for 20 years and says the condition of the road has been terrible from day one. “What it was, was a failed experiment,” he said of one of the last remaining concrete roads in the city.  The road on the west side of the city is full of asphalt-filled cracks and larger asphalt patches cover bigger issues.

Some days, you crave the security of a close-toed shoe.
