This week we welcomed the month of October, the time of year when we start to wind down our summer maintenance activities and gear up for winter. Such is the ebb and flow of life in the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. This long weekend, many of us will gather together to celebrate Thanksgiving, the gift of sharing and being grateful for the things we have at hand. We are grateful to work with countless people across the province every day of the year, and so, for this Bridging the Week, we want to share some of our favourite blogs with you. So, here they are, in no particular order:
Connections, by YVR. This blog deals with all things airport. A couple of cool blogs over the last month include Technology for travellers and Thanksgiving Travel Tips. If travel is in the cards for you this weekend, stop here first.
The Buzzer Blog, by Translink. Our transit friends know how to keep it real, running transit polls and sharing interesting archival content. Check them out: http://buzzer.translink.ca
Emergency Info BC, Awareness Campaigns. No matter what the emergency issue, these folks have it covered. Did you know that this week is Fire Prevention Week? They do. Do you know what to do if zombies attack? They know that too. Be prepared.
The Evergreen Line also made news this week with an announcement of the selection of SNC-Lavalin Inc. to help design, build and finance the Evergreen Line Rapid Transit project in the Lower Mainland area.
The Evergreen Line project will link the cities of Burnaby, Port Moody and Coquitlam with an 11-kilometre advanced light rapid transit line between Lougheed Town Centre in Burnaby and Douglas College in Coquitlam. The components of the project include elevated and at-grade guideways, a two-kilometre bored tunnel, seven stations, power substations, train operating systems, parking facilities, and a vehicle storage and light maintenance facility.
Thanks for sharing and if you have anything you would like to share with us, find us on facebook, chat with us on Twitter, follow all of our boards on Pinterest or check in with us on Foursquare. We are always here and we love to share. Gobble!
