It’s been a long, bumpy ride

When we first returned back to White Rock a month ago, we drove down Marine Drive and couldn’t believe the state of the road.

When we first returned back to White Rock a month ago, we drove down Marine Drive and couldn’t believe the state of the road.

To say that the road was uneven would be understating. It was worse than a horse and buggy ride.

I said to my husband, you would think with all these million-dollar homes there, especially on the water side, the city would have been able to replace the roads better than that.

Since last week, I have been seeing TransLink shuttle buses going up and down my street. I live on High Street, and this street is every bit as steep as Oxford and much narrower, plus at the top it has a 90-degree turn that is very dangerous.

I couldn’t imagine why buses were diverted to this street.

I phoned White Rock City Hall; there were no engineers available, as they apparently are on a course – I hope it is on how to fix roads.

I am sure city engineers are under the gun to fix up Marine Drive before the Tour de White Rock, but what is taking them so long?
