Road work beneficial

TransLink’s road and transit investments all over Metro Vancouver provide a direct benefit to the majority of Surrey-based commuters.

Re: “Transit report puts cart before horse,” The Leader, Nov. 28.

When we look at the benefits to Surrey motorists and transit users, what’s often missed is the fact that many residents (myself included) are heavy users of the major arterial roads and the integrated transit network beyond our city’s borders.

While we acknowledge that we’re playing “catch-up” in terms of building out transit services south of the Fraser, it should be noted that TransLink’s road and transit investments all over Metro Vancouver provide a direct benefit to the majority of Surrey-based commuters who leave the city on their trips to work or school each day.
