One-track mind on White Rock
About the South Surrey-White Rock train tracks being moved – sorry folks, but this idea is dead in the water before the ink is dry.
The rail line was moved there in 1907 because all other alternatives were not in the railway’s best interest.
Who in there right mind will pay a private company hundreds of millions of dollars to move their rail line when the railway doesn’t even want to move it? Where would it move to?
In the past, this idea has been floated and then it has gone away. This will probably happen again and again over time as people get their shirts in a knot now and then with the tracks not moving an inch.
I don’t want my tax dollars being wasted on something that will have minimal impact. People moved into the White Rock area long after the tracks were laid.
If the folks in White Rock want the tracks moved, let them pay for it from their own pockets.
