SkyTrain for Surrey, not LRT!

The Canada Line in Richmond integrates exceptionally well with the urban environment.

While we don’t have much in the way of finished text content to share with our readers today, we would like to share with you some images we found dating back to the Canada Line implementation plans for Richmond.  The images prominently showcase how the rapid rail transit guideway of the Canada Line SkyTrain line integrates exceptionally well with the urban environment of downtown Richmond and No. 3 Road.  Why it is claimed by many that SkyTrain cannot integrate well with urban environments is quite puzzling; all you have to do is be creative.
