Seems Translink is listening. Here’s an email we received earlier today from Ken Hardie:
As promised, we have scheduled an additional session for New Westminster residents to look at options for the United Boulevard Extension.
It will be at the Justice Institute on Tuesday, December 7th from 6 to 8:30 pm. Unlike the session we held there last week, the one on the 7th will include a presentation and open-mike session in the theatre, that will provide a better opportunity for people to get the background on each of the options and a better forum for questions and answers.
TransLink has received New Westminster Council’s motion asking that only option A – the ‘T Intersection’ be discussed. We understand the reasons for Council’s position, and will be going forward with a discussion on all options because of our obligation to exercise due diligence on behalf of taxpayers across Metro Vancouver. Option A is the most expensive of the four and, while it will work, is not as effective as the others in moving traffic smoothly.
Please, mark your calendars, folks. Please be heard. Please get active and make your opinion known. The only way to shape your community is to be a part of it. Also, don’t forget to write our Mayor and Council. Letters count.
