This is astonishing:
A comprehensive strategy for transit south of the Fraser, costed out, well presented and persuasive. At first glance, it looks to be the kind of thing that keeps teams of consultants gainfully employed and well funded.
It was written by one Grade 12 student.
Paul Hillsdon has put together his vision of a South of the Fraser transit vision for 2011. …. He is a Grade 12 student in Surrey and his proposal is far smarter than anything coming out of the Ministry of Transportation or TransLink.
He takes into consideration where growth is expected to occur, and proposes various kinds of public transit that run through these high-growth areas. He proposes a combination of heavy rail, light rail and BRT. All-in-all a very thorough report.
