TransLink is being a good neighbour by building a sound barrier thats one and a half metres higher than the original one of the north side of the Golden Ears Bridge.
While the original wall was built to specification, complaints from the community have prompted the transit authority that built the bridge to build a higher wall and plant to trees to buffer the sound of traffic from the bridge.
Being a good neighbour, were constructing a wall thats higher, said Derek Zobel, TransLink spokesperson.
The new wall will cost $817,000 to build and should be completed by late May, depending on the weather, Zobel said.
