Langley Advance Article

Matthew Claxton at the Langley Advance wrote an article about Get Moving BC’s Bridges Report, you can read the full article on the Advance’s website. He also made reference to our blog post earlier this week about that report.
Nathan Pachal of South Fraser OnTrax said building more bridges won't help get people out of their cars, and it won't help most commuters.

"It doesn't help the majority of people who stay in the South Fraser," said Pachal.

He noted that any new bridge is likely to cost about $1 billion - the Golden Ears Bridge is budgeted at more than $800 million - and that the money could also easily give Langley a community rail link to Surrey, with plenty left over for more buses.
