Burrard Bridge lane closure to cars has people, ahem, talking
If you avoided going downtown this weekend, just like the Thursday afternoon press release advised, then you probably are a little less grumpy than those who got stuck in gridlock. Both the Granville Street and Burrard bridges were bumper to bumper according to this GlobalTV BC report.
Well it's July 13th, the beginning of the 3-month, $1.45 million Burrard Bridge "experiment" that Mayor Robertson and his colleagues have bet their political capital on succeeding. It certainly has people talking enough that we're almost moving on from Michael Jackson...almost.
Today is the launch of a new service of CityCaucus.com that we're calling simply, GregorsGridlock.com.
At the page we've set up you can get all the latest and best information about the Burrard Bridge lane reallocation, who's talking about it, links and resources that show that this little culture war that's broken out was completely avoidable had Vision handled it better.
We look forward to hearing your views on Gregor's Gridlock, and so will our readers.
