-20 For fuck’s sake. Now the Province wants to demolish the existing Port Mann bridge, create a 10-lane monstrocity, and charge a $3 to everyone. It’s now double the building cost and charging a toll on everyone instead of just users of a new bridge. The Province says it will be built to handle light-rail in some sugar-coated future, but that was said about the Alex Fraser bridge and they filled in the lane reserved for rapid transit with cars. If you build a 10-lane bridge, will you not need a ten-lane freeway on both ends to avoid a merging nightmare?
