The Canada Line elevated railway as it creeps into downtown Richmond, if there is such a thing. Here it is on No. 3 Road, a stone's throw north of Westminster Highway.
The pylons are placed ahead of time, and then the awesome crane-thing lifts the pre-poured railway segments into place.
When it's done, it will be possible to take the train into Vancouver or to the airport, which will be handy. At this point no one seems particularly fond of the thing. There is something psychologically oppressive about having a thick beam of concrete across the middle of your field of vision. Those responsible for transit plan to prettify it with hanging baskets. I can't wait.
Next post will be back to more natural things.
