Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

Will it be smooth sailing ahead, or rough seas?

Pete McMartin in the Vancouver Sun has the second of his pieces on the port expansion.

Normally I would type a lot about this sort of thing, but that is not the case to-day because the second part of the article is a very fair summary of my views. These were collected over a series of telephone conversations over the last few days.

We also talked about the broader Gateway program – especially the freeway expansion and the SFPR. I am hoping that those will be the subject of his weekend column as he indicated he saw this as a three parter.

  1. I thought this was a great article actually. How about the picture of the absolute behemoth Port Mann bridge right below? That has GOT to be stopped.

    What is with the isolated 2-lane sections in each direction?

  2. I have not seen the print edition of the story or the picture you refer to.

  3. I think the 2-lane sections are specifically for Surrey to Coquitlam traffic or something like that.
