Uni­ver­sity Bridge

The London Free Press - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing the ar­ti­cle Uni­ver­sity Drive Bridge will re­open to mo­tor ve­hi­cles on March 1 (Jan. 11).

If I can make the same point I made a few months ago, the Uni­ver­sity Drive bridge is not a “short­cut.” There is no cross street be­tween Rich­mond Street and Won­der­land Road in the five-kilo­me­tre stretch from Ox­ford Street to Fan­shawe Park Road. Un­til such time as the city merges Win­der­mere and Gains­bor­ough roads, com­muters will con­tinue to use the uni­ver­sity as an al­ter­nate to the al­ready clogged Ox­ford and Fan­shawe Park. Most of the com­muters pay taxes at three lev­els to sup­port this uni­ver­sity and feel that we have as much right to use the prop­erty as any­one else.
