Letter: Promises made for South of the Fraser have not come through

To the editor;
Enough! The gridlock and congestion are from mostly cars from south of the Fraser River and east to the Valley.

Enough! The gridlock and congestion are from mostly cars from south of the Fraser River and east to the Valley. There was a promise 25 years ago to attack this issue.

The bill was already paid by the taxpayers (gas taxes and other taxes) but nothing was done. Now they promise… in 12 years this will be addressed.

Pay tolls, more gas taxes and a congestion tax that will never be enough because Vancouver city gets all the money for their infrastructure.

That is pure B.S. I’m sorry, but an LRT is street level. It was never good enough for Vancouver and north of the Fraser and it is not rapid transit (so stop saying it is).

Twelve years will not solve the congestion issues. Everything they are trying to sell is lies. I have lived south of the Fraser River for 27 years and have paid for rapid transit to Langley already.

Where is it?

Oh yeah.

Vancouver has all the infrastructure and is getting more with the Broadway Line: Rapid transit to UBC.

That’s not an LRT, which are proposing now for Surrey and Langley…in 12 years.

It’s already 25 years too late! I’m voting no.
