The climbing lanes from 232nd to 264th alleviated the traffic on the worst stretch.

It also looks like 200th was built to accommodate HOV lanes exiting eastbound and entering westbound, which gives me some hope.

I cant wait until they finish the galardi overpass, ive been taking the galardi overpass for a while and the seismic upgrades have been a bitch the last few months.


Overall, I'm happy that they built the Port Mann and expanded the highway, it has definitely made the commute easier.

No reason why it shouldn't be 100 even 110km limit. The average speed when traffic is flowing is 110-120km. People don't seem to pay a whole lot of attention to the signs

I think the 80/90 speed limits are either construction speeds or is set as "training", or maybe even to see how we do? Can't think of anywhere else in the lower mainland that 4-6 lanes of traffic flow on each side and with constant turns. Most lanes (Before construction that I can think of correct if wrong) are Alex Fraser (3 lanes) Lions Gate (Counterflow 3) Massey Tunnel (Counterflow 3), and if we count city 3 for Marine drive (Riush hour) 3 Kingsway (Rush hour) and 3 Vedder Road Chilliwack for a short distance. But those above mentioned roads are all straight driving for the most part.

And yes you're right there's always assholes who blow by me at 130 ish and make my truck shake. Pretty stupid on the west side of the bridge cause of all the turns.

And then there are the people who seem to be scared to go speed limit and hog up the left lane and drift into the center lane constantly.

They should also put up better signage, so people quit cruising in the passing lane - then enforce it.

Not like people follow signs anyways. That signs put up a lot of other places (ex. Highway One Abbotsford) but still seems like nobody gives a shit. And it's kinda hard for police to jump up when there's 4-6 lanes of traffic to catch somebody

$150 for a small vehicle , $300 for a medium vehicle.

I'd say that's a smart move over paying $1000?

I am assuming he didn't pay it for a bunch of months.

There is literally no way to get a $1000 bill if you are registered.




If they don't bump the speed limit to 100km/h+ relatively soon, and quickly start to decrease the active construction zone, I foresee a lot more people joining the speed sense movement.

It has been months since there was active construction related to the expansion west of willingdon. Yet it remains a part of the construction zone.

They can argue about the bridge deck construction, but thats an unrelated project. Scale back your fucking work zone and crank the speed limit back up.

And if the limit remains at 90km/h after they added extra lanes, and did all this work making the highway safe, they must really be off their fucking rockers.

On a sunny day everyone on that highway is going 110km/h+. Even the big fucking trucks are moving at well past the 100km/h mark.

I saw a kiewit truck going 130km/h at least.

It's very easy to spot when you're driving. I wasn't implying they would be stationary. When's the last time you've heard of someone getting a ticket for blocking the left lane?

The better the signage, enforcement and awareness, the less it will happen.

Unless you are registered with a business fleet of vehicles. Otherwise, $1,000 has to be for several months. Speculating here, but I'm guessing a Refuse to Issue was sent. If you have $25 overdue in tolls past 90 days, the next time you go to renew your insurance or driver's licence, you won't be able to until you pay.

There's no way around not paying if you cross the bridge. They even charge interest now.

murd0c, you need to register or pay within a week of using the bridge. if i am not mistaken, there is like 2.50 or 1.50 for a finding fee (to find your information through your license plate). i believe this is for each time you use the bridge.

and here's a blurb from their website:

You have 30 days to pay your tolls from the date on your mailed invoice. After 30 days, interest will accrue daily on the outstanding balance at a rate of 19% per year, compounded monthly.
Once your balance reaches more than $25 and has been outstanding for more than 90 days, your account will be designated as Refuse to Issue (RTI). ICBC will then be notified and you will be unable to renew your driver's licence or purchase car insurance until the toll debt and any additional fees have been paid in full.
Unpaid tolls by out of province users will be subject to collections.

If you're registered, you shouldn't have been charged.

So you didn't pay for 6-7 months, and you are complaining?

You're pretty stupid.

EDIT: 15 minutes saved per trip. 2 trips a day, 5 days a week, for 7 months.

You saved 70 hours of travel time.

Even at $20/hour, you saved 1400 bucks using that bridge. Which in theory puts you ahead by 400 bucks over what they charged you.

This does not factor the gas you saved by not idling in traffic and the headache and BS you have to deal with. Nor the wear and tear on your car.

But have fun in the patullo bridge traffic. Just pray you aren't on it when that Piece of shit comes crumbling down in even the most minor earthquake.

If you're registered you don't have any licence plate processing fees. That $1,000 is all toll fees. Interest did not start getting charged until April 1. At 19 per cent, it's a good idea you paid it off.

You were, but if you had your credit card replaced or it expired, or for any number of other reasons it was no longer valid, then the charges would have sat on the account until you finally paid them and added a new credit card.

My credit card expired and I got a new one, within that month they must have sent me three letters and a bunch of emails telling me to update my information so that my bill can be paid.
