Turnout High For Burrard Bridge Consultation Meeting

A public meeting concerning the lane re-allocation trial to test improved cycling facilities on the Burrard Bridge was held on Saturday, Jan. 31, 2009 at the Roundhouse Community Centre. Both sides of the debate were well-represented and media turnout included local radio, print, and television reporters.

Friends of the Burrard Bridge spokesperson Rob Wynen was interviewed by a number of those reporters. Here is an excerpt from his interview with CTV News. Still images of intersections and crosswalks on both the North and South sides of the bridge demonstrate some of the challenges and safety issues pedestrians and cyclists face when using the bridge.
