The folks at TRU Winnipeg have begun to put posters up around our fair city including on my less-than-rapid bus line. So, it’s time that I delve into the dark subteranean world of public transportation debates!
In this first post, I intend merely to point you to the subway plan, developped in 1959 by Norman D. Wilson, who also designed these doo-dads for other cities like Toronto, which dug deep and got er’ done.
Take a look at their maps, a desciption of the history of the subway and it’s main benefits, and their not-so-detailed plan for getting there. Their blog also offers insight into water tables, soil, and other fun technical issues that have been discussed and aparently resolved.
My analysis will follow in a seperate post tomorrow. For now, read up on the subway if you haven’t heard of it already. I’ll be giving a detailed response soon, with pictures!
