Surrey Doors Open at Surrey’s Engineering Department

Surrey Doors Open 2012 has come and gone, did you get out to any of the 30+ venues around the city? I decided to check our the Surrey Engineering Department’s open house at the main works yard on 148th street in Newton. There were tons of families there enjoying free pony rides, a hot dog bbq (by donation), a balloon making clown, and much more! My friend Clint, who works for the city as an excavator operator, was on hand giving kids rides in the big machines including his son.

There were tents set up from various city departments showing how the guts of Surrey work and what it takes to run the hidden infrastructure under our feet. There were several alternative fuel vehicles on hand that the city uses in day to day operations to reduce emissions. It was pretty awesome to see this much heavy machinery in one spot, it’s a great reminder of where our tax dollars are spent. I hope you were following along on Twitter and had a chance to come down and see the yard for yourself, if not don’t fret I took lots of pictures! Check them out!
