It’s been a commuter’s nightmare for more than a week now.
The speed bump on the south end of the Lions’ Gate Bridge has caused Translink to modify at least two of its bus routes during peak times.
Transit users heading to and from the North Shore usually taking buses like the 240 or the 246, are being detoured to Lonsdale Quay or Waterfront.
Translink spokesperson Anne Drennan: “Because of the construction on the bridge, which has caused heavy volume traffic and delays, this just gives us an opportunity to move people to another route to the North Shore so that they don’t have undue waits in traffic.”
Blue Buses from West Vancouver are still running across the bridge.
The speed bump has also inspired a parody Twitter account: @LionsGateBump
The Ministry of Transportation says it is safe to drive over the one-and-three-quarter inch metal bump at regular speed, but it’s now looking at alternative options, after an outcry from the public.
