Letter-writer Martin Vath questions the length of time road work on King George Boulevard has been going on.

Not much of a work in progress

Editor:

I’ve come to believe it took less time to build the new Port Mann Bridge than it’s taking crews around King George and 148 Street.

I’ve come to believe that it took less time to build the new Port Mann Bridge than it’s taking the crews working around the intersection of King George Boulevard and 148 Street (32 Avenue Diversion) to finish whatever make-work project they have going on.

How many months have gone by without that intersection being inundated with orange traffic dividers and large arrow boards causing havoc?

And how many times have I had the misfortune to find myself travelling through the intersection without even seeing anyone there, let alone actually doing something!

If it’s a private firm contracted to do the work, then they must be working on a per-hour basis rather than a contract.

If it’s the Surrey municipality doing the job, then the taxpayers are getting hosed.

Enough already. Get the job done.
