A bridge without direction

Winnipeg Free Press, November 2

It’s not often that the city and province both manage to damage a golden opportunity. Their joint bungling of the abandoned CN Rail right of way through central River Heights and over the Assiniboine River, however, is one such example.

When CN tore up the Oakpoint Subdivision about 10 years ago, the city had an opportunity to convert the land into a transportation corridor, either for rapid transit, or for pedestrians and cyclists.
