  1. Granville closes to buses April 24 Two-year project includes tunnelling, prep work for stations Article Tools Printer friendly E-mail Font: * * * * John Bermingham, The Province Published: Thursday, March 30, 2006 You're going to have to wait two years for a bus on Granville Street. Starting April 24, the busiest bus corridor in the city is closed to public transit, due to construction of the Canada Line. It's one of many roadwork projects in and around Vancouver that are sure to frustrate motorists this summer. Canada Line spokesman Steve Crombie said the closure is to do cut-and-cover tunnel work along Granville and prepare the sites for the Robson and Waterfront stations. "Even though we have got a very, very major infrastructure project happening, and it's going to be very, very disruptive, all these businesses along the Canada Line are going to remain open for business during the construction," said Crombie. Granville buses from the north side of Granville Bridge to Cordova Street will be diverted through Howe and Seymour. Work on the Canada Line will also affect traffic on Davie Street, from Hamilton to Pacific Boulevard, starting Monday. From April 6, traffic flows along Cambie Street will change from Marine Drive to 54th Avenue. Highlights among the city's $32-million roadworks program include: - East Broadway, from Yukon to Nanaimo: repave the roadway, rebuild sidewalks and plant trees. - Commercial Drive, from Venables to Grandview Highway: replace a sewer main. - Dunsmuir, from Beatty to Burrard: install a new watermain and bike lane. - Blenheim, from 16th Avenue to S.W. Marine Drive: install traffic-calming changes. - Carrall, from Water Street to Pacific Boulevard: build a greenway, including street redesign.

  2. OR... since they are holding hockey in there... and hockey is a Canadian institution.. they will probably call it Stadium Canada... and BC Place will be called Olympic Stadium... or... they'll come up with something more inventive.. like "Telesphere" haha jokes
  3. It will be a great location for the media and press during 2010, much better than the other locations previously discussed. Centrally located and awesome with the shots behind the anchor's desks of the mountains in the distance, I would think. "Living roof" we can accept, although it's not exactly a replacement for the actual thing. Just to make sure I'm orienting myself, as I'm not from Vancouver proper, ... the new addition is to the north of the current convention and cruise ship terminal, am I correct about that? The new convention centre is West of the Current Convention Centre.
