YVR is expanding, as do most airports. It's great to see that the YVR
Authority is being aggressive in it's planning, but I am also hoping that they also plan properly. Getting to the airport from HWY 99 can be a real pain at times, it would be much easier (especially for the residents of Richmond) if you could bypass Bridgeport Road completely. One logical way I can see them do this, is by building another bridge that connects the Arthur Laing (or at least Grant McConnachie Way) with the Oak Street Bridge. Idealy, access from both north and southbound traffic, that way you can free up some of the traffic on the Arthur Laing Bridge feeding into Richmond from Vancouver via Granville Street and S.W. Marine Drive.
I'm quite sure the the YVR
Authority (or the cities of Richmond and Vancouver), will come up with an ideal solution that will benefit both the passengers of YVR
as well as the local community. They already did a great job after the last major expansion, by having Bridgeport Road going straight to Grant McConnachie Way, instead of having to turn left on to No.3 Road, followed by a quick right turn on to the Moray Bridge.
As far as the Canada Line goes, that is something they should have put in place 20 years ago, and when they do come up with the final design, I really hope that it is passenger friendly enough, that you can take your suitcase on it.
