Surrey mayor concerned about surge in Pattullo Bridge traffic

The Mayor of Surrey is again raising concerns about the impact of tolling the Port Mann bridge on other crossings in her city.

Dianne Watts says early numbers are not good.
 
“The numbers that I got from the BC Trucking Association, they’ve monitored about a 25 per cent diversion onto the Pattullo Bridge which again is problematic because again it is coming through Surrey and through New Westminster and going that way.”

Watts was speaking after chairing the first meeting of a new Metro Vancouver Transportation committee.

That’s also where Translink executives reported region-wide service expansion could cost as much as an extra 700-million dollars every year.
