Pattullo Bridge

Last week I wrote a post on Civic Surrey about the Pattullo Bridge. You can read the whole post on that site, but I basically argued that a four-lane replacement bridge makes the most sense to build instead of a six-lane bridge. The post piqued the interest of News 1130 which ran a story on it.

But blogger and transportation activist Nathan Pachal says building more traffic lanes doesn't always equal less congestion.

"When you replace that four lane bridge with a six lane bridge is basically shifting the bottleneck 500 metres," he explains. "For the extra $200-million is it really worth shifting the bottleneck?"
