Edmonton Notes for 4/3/2011

Here are my weekly Edmonton notes:

I started shaking my head as soon as I read the first few words of this article:

A new six-lane freeway being planned for southwest Edmonton could someday zip motorists from Anthony Henday Drive to the city boundary at 100 km/h.

That freeway would not be completed for another 40 to 50 years. Why plan for this now? It’s absurd. I can’t believe we’re spending resources on that when we could be building the LRT and removing the need for the freeway altogether.

  1. Is your concern about the fact that money which *could* be used for LRT is being used to plan something that is 40-50 years out, or that what’s being planned is a major arterial roadway and not LRT?
