Occasional PT contributor and full-time Langley City councilor Nathan Pachal writes about recently released plans for the Surrey light rail projects, and much more. Incidentally ever-more likely to happen, too, given the increasing likelihood of referendum-free local funding.
For example, the plans includes changing King George Boulevard to a tree-lined multi-modal corridor.
Today it’s a six-lane urban arterial — almost a freeway in its design and usage. The change incorporates the “complete street” approach, where those who choose their feet or a bike will have a safe, useable and pleasant place to make their trip.
As usual, let’s all prepare for yet another round of “Carmageddon“, the consequence-free game of predicting near-complete societal collapse as a result of changes to the existing allocation of road space.
The plan’s map shows two lines, with a combined total of 19 LRT stops over 27 km of travel.
