Master Transportation Plan (Pattullo Bridge)
The City of New Westminster is working on its Master Transportation Plan. The City’s existing Long-Range Transportation Plan was developed in 1998 and recommended improvements for all modes over the next 20 years. Since the existing Transportation Plan was adopted, there have been a number of changes to land use patterns and the transportation network within New Westminster.
The updated Master Transportation Plan will guide decision-making for transportation over the next 25 years and beyond. The updated Master Transportation Plan will recommend improvements for all modes of transportation, including walking, cycling, public transit, goods movement, and vehicles. This process is important to ensure that transportation investments work towards achieving the City’s strategic goals, make the best use of our tax dollars and help shift towards a more sustainable future.
The Master Transportation Plan Update will be a six-phase process between September 2011 and December 2012.
Open House #1 - Existing Transportation Conditions
The City hosted its first Open House on January 26 and February 14, 2012 at City Hall and Century House.
The purpose of the Open House was:
- to let you know about the Master Transportation Plan process
- present the findings to date regarding the existing transportation system in New Westminster
- obtain your input on the challenges and opportunities for transportation in New Westminster
Open House #2 - Vision and Goals of the Plan
The City of New Westminster hosted a second Master Transportation Plan Open House on May 3, 2012 with a focus on the vision and goals of the Plan. The City also sought community input on the proposed replacement of the Pattullo Bridge.
