Not complaining about underpass project

Re: "Plessis closure will require sacrifice" Letters, The Herald, Aug. 21

Editor,
I think my interview in the Herald ("Plessis Road Closure already affecting family" Aug. 7) may have been misconstrued by some that I am complaining about the underpass project.
Nothing could be further from the truth, as we have lobbied harder than anyone to have this long overdue project advanced (as Councillor Wyatt would attest to).
Another point is that it would have been nice to have a temporary road in place rather than completely shutting down Plessis Road. Similar accommodations were made to keep one lane of Disraeli Freeway open for the East Kildonan residents.
It would have also been a nice gesture for CN Rail to contribute to the project by shortening the length of the trains during the construction period.
My intent during the interview was just to open a dialogue on how the closure of Plessis Road, for the projected year and a half, impacts residents, particularly those in south Transcona who are still suffering from the closure of the public access to CN’s midway several years back.
