Highway 1 Day of Action TOMORROW!

by

Just one more day…

Please get your friends and family out to this important, historic event in the Fraser Valley.

It’s simple: Choose an overpass, make some signs, & do your part, Saturday from 11:00am to 1:00pm, to bring passenger rail service back to the Fraser Valley!

LIGHT RAIL FANS TO HIT THE HIGHWAY

Our Day of Action is in the news – big-time!

Day of Action will focus on light rail advantages (Abbotsford Times, April 10)

150 km of track, trains for price of new bridge: Study (The Province, April 9)

‘Massive’ transit protest planned (Robert Freeman, Chilliwack Progress, April 7)

Light rail fans to hit the highway (Jeff Nagel, Surrey Leader, April 3)

On April 11, from 11:00am to 1:00pm, we will make history, holding banners for two hours atop Highway 1 overpasses throughout the Lower Mainland, from Chilliwack in the east to Eagleridge Bluffs in West Vancouver, in support of passenger rail and in opposition to our government’s current single-minded Gateway agenda of road-building and 2nd-class transit for the South of Fraser.

*To sign up to take part in this important action, please send an email to railforthevalley@gmail.com*

We need to be very organized to pull this off, so

HAVE A LOOK AT THE MAP

& let me know your overpass preference, and whether you can make a sign or a banner.

Instead of twinning the Port Mann Bridge, the province intends to tear it down and build an all-new 10-lane span.

UBC professor Patrick Condon estimates 200 kilometres of light rail can be built for the cost of rebuilding the Port Mann Bridge and widening Highway 1.
