Tonight, travelling home around 5 p.m., I turned off Cliffe Avenue onto the 17th Street bridge and all I saw was a sea of red brake lights stretching to Dyke Road.
Here was the obvious need to spend $31 million on a third crossing.
Daunted, I settled in to what would obviously be a long wait.
Four minutes later I was passing the CVRD offices. Less than five minutes.
To cut that time would cost $6,200,000 a minute. Amazing!
Proponents of a third crossing, give your heads a shake. Ride your bike, take a bus or walk.
