No reserved bus lane on Champlain Bridge: Minister

South shore commuters who rely on the Champlain bridge will have to get used to no morning Montreal bound reserved bus lane for the foreseeable future.

The reserved lane was part of a plan to help alleviate traffic during a month long repair on the span, but the transport minister says it isn't in the best interest of motorists.

The lane was supposed to be in operation for this morning's rush hour but strong winds forced crews to shut it down.

    The lane was closed because it added to the congestion, not because of "high winds". Unfortunately here in Quebec, some people in power have difficulty telling us the truth. Another example of this came from Transport Quebec, when they told us that the new "serpentine" exit at St Jacques street was designated that way as a "traffic calming measure". Now of course, we find out that the whole exit needs to be taken down and redesigned..
    PS High winds happen on the Champlain. This is not new.
