Did they even think?

Now that the Canada Line has been running for almost a month so decided to take a trip to Richmond on it. Translink's website said the best route is to transfer from the 99B at the Cambie station. Big mistake!

The wise ones at Vancouver City Hall decided yesterday was a great day to remove the blacktop along the section along Broadway between Yukon and Ash. Traffic was reduced one lane each direction. Travel time between Main Street and Ash was close to 20 minutes.

This is one of, if not, the busiest street in Vancouver. Why could they do the work suring the summer when traffic is lighter? Hey they have at least 2 weeks after the Canada Line opened. And what about weekends? Sure it cost more but taxes being going up every year anyhow.
