That horrible freeway cuts a huge scar in the city's urban fabric near the waterfront.

The urban fabric that surrounds the expressway now was built after the expressway. The land south of Front street was originally lake, then made into mainly industrial land using fill. It isn't a case of a freeway cutting through urban fabric like you see in some places.

I actually don't mind the freeways in the build up areas, all big cities have that if you want the smoother traffic coming from and going to the suburbs. Vancouver is the worst case of traffic problem in North America due to the lack of freeways network that causing all traffic are jammed on the city streets.

^ The best thing to complain about is the need for more public transit services and active transportation rather than more highways.

I used to drive but now I take transit everyday and I enjoy it because it save me gas money and I can do thing on the bus. But I do understand the frustration of the Vancouver drivers spend most time getting stuck in the traffic. Not all people are lucky enough to take transits or skytrains everyday, especially the people have young and old family members who require cars to go around.

Mind you that Vancouver has one of the best transit systems in Canada and I have no complains about that but I always envy our neighbour down south, Portland which I think provides the best transportation infrastructure in the North America, it has the very extensive buses and LRT networks but also have many freeways to serve the city. So the people who needs the cars can use the freeways and people enjoy the transits like us can hop up the trains and buses. They give people lots of options when going around the city and not forcing people to just take transits only.
