The City of New Westminster has announced that a new, tolled 4-lane bridge option best addresses the TransLink identified problem statement on future development of the Pattullo Bridge. The City’s position on a preferred solution closely aligns with its official policy of working towards the principle of no new added capacity in the transportation system for vehicles passing through the city.
Following the recent Provincial announcement on new directions for transportation funding and governance in the Lower Mainland, the Pattullo Bridge Review community consultation on remaining options has been postponed and the TransLink Mayors Council has been asked to prepare a 30-year investment plan for the region. As the future of the Pattullo Bridge will have a high priority in this plan, the City considers it important that all community, regional and provincial stakeholders are aware of the City’s position.
