On a recent trip to St. John's I was amazed at the amount on new roadways that have been built in and around St. John’s and the outlying areas.

However, there is one serious item that seems to have been forgotten and that is the need to light the on and exit ramps for the new roadways.

Given the fog conditions that exist on the Avalon peninsula, and even in dark driving conditions, is it too much to expect that the ramps be lit up to lessen the guess work when approaching the ramps?
