$145 million dollars. That is a big number and can be a tad difficult to interpret. So, let’s break it down a bit further.
Last week we looked at contributions TransLink has made in Burnaby and New Westminster since 2012. This week, Surrey and Langley are up!
Here are just a few of the projects and investments in these areas:
- Fraser Hwy. road widening (228 St. to 23500 block) – $ 2,716,000
- New bike lanes on 48 Ave. (20400 block to 210 St.) – $209,000
- Introduction of new 96 B-Line service linking Guildford and Newton via Surrey Central Station
- Widening 16th Ave. (crossing over Hwy 99) and building bike lanes in both directions – $ 4,655,895
- First phase of the Surrey Lake Greenway (140th St. to Coopershawk Crt.) -$185,700
- Introduced new express service (555 Port Mann Express) across the Port Mann Bridge linking Carvolth Exchange, Fraser Heights/Guildford and Braid SkyTrain Station.
Each municipality has their own fact sheet and you can see what’s been done in, and being planned for, your community’s future.
