  • Beginning July 24th, 2017, the City of New Westminster’s contractor, Hall Constructors, will be repairing some curbs, sidewalks and letdowns and completing the final layer of asphalt paving along Ewen Avenue from Derwent Way to Hampton Street, weather dependent. This work will facilitate the Phase 2 completion of Ewen Avenue which is a fundamental east‐west connection across Queensborough that accommodates a range of transportation options including transit, walking and cycling.

    During completion of the final layer of asphalt (August 1st to 4th), access to any given driveway will be temporarily interrupted for up to 3 hours. In addition, there will be no parking on Ewen Avenue from Johnston Street to Hampton Street. Vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense if these temporary restrictions are not followed. If special consideration is required please contact the City’s project manager. Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times and we will endeavor to minimize disruption as much as possible. However, as with a project of this nature, some disruption is inevitable.

  • As part of the City of New Westminster’s 2017 Sewer Separation Program, road construction will be taking place on Hamilton Street, Seventh  Avenue and Nanaimo Street between Tenth Street and Twelfth Street from July until the end of October.

    Throughout Construction:

    • Typical hours of work will be from 7:00am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday;
    • Streets will be closed to all vehicular traffic; 
    • Pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained at all times;
    • Traffic control personnel will be on site;
    • Parking will not be available during construction hours;
    • Residents that are directly impacted will be notified in advance of work commencing.

    In a combined sewer system, stormwater runoff is combined in a single pipe with wastewater from homes, businesses, and industry. During drier weather, the stormwater and wastewater are carried to the sewage treatment plant together. But in heavy rain, high volumes of stormwater can exceed the capacity of a combined sewer system. The excess, untreated amounts overflow and empty directly into our waterways. However, with sewer separation, rainwater and sewage are handled independently which helps limit environmental impacts.

    We will endeavor to minimize disruption as much as possible. However, as with a project of this nature, some disruption is inevitable.

    If you have any questions please contact the City’s Project Manager, Amir Aminpour at or 604 515 3796.
