Translink Goes Back to the Drawing Board – With the Community

We all remember last November and December when Translink consulted with the City and soon recognized residents’ concerns with the design options that were presented and potential impacts on the local neighbourhood.
Well, they heard the very vocal opposition from the community and are now coming back to find out from us what our concerns are, what our transportation issues are, and what we can suggest as possible solutions.
Apparently over the next 3 months, starting next Saturday, they want to engage in this process with New Westminster residents. The meetings will be in three phases. All meetings will be at the Sapperton Pensioners Hall, 318 Keary Street, New Westminster.

Phase 1: Community Concerns and Ideas Workshops

Phase 2: Initial and Refined Concepts
