If you build it, they will come. Sadly, this mantra applies equally well to roads and bridges as cheesey Kevin Costner baseball movies.
When traffic congestion builds, the obvious short-term solution is to build more roads. But in the long term, the roads fill up, necessitating more and more roads until you end up with Los Angeles-style freeways. Get Moving BC’s proposal (as detailed in The Livable Blog) to build more bridges to solve our bottlenecks is just more of the same.
Thanks to Beyond Robson blogger Sean Orr for the heads-up (This is one issue where a lefty and a righty can meet in the middle).
