Port Mann Congestion Claim Questioned

with one comment

The Straight

Kevin Purton of Surrey Environmental Partners has photographic evidence that Kevin Falcon’s claim of “14 hours a day of congestion” is far from the truth.  Seven hours would be closer to what most people would concede as “congestion”. But is seems that anything less than the posted speed can be considered “congested” according to Garland Chow of UBC’s Centre for Transportation Studies.

Harrumph!
