Surrey Council's LRT - Best Kept Secret
I received a press release with a PDF file from a coalition of concerned citizens objecting to the LRT disaster in Surrey. Aside from the obvious infrastructure nightmare, they state: "The Mayor Linda Hepner will not tell, nor will the LTR Program Manager Paul Lee, tell the citizens of Surrey where the Light Rail Transit (LRT ) Maintenance Yard / Stock Rail Yard will be located."
The obvious point in question is that expropriating more land costs more money while the Skytrain already has space allotted for it's maintenance yard which once again illustrates another advantage of Skytrain over an on ground train running down the middle of a busy inner city street.
