Thank you for your coverage this past week on advocacy efforts (by multiple groups and residents) for allocating (or re-allocating) more money towards sustainable transportation and public realm initiatives that council has made.
Choosing to publicize these opinions/suggestions will hopefully help to bring these issues to light and help residents understand that utilizing sustainable transportation modes builds stronger, healthier communities.
Also, I was happy to see your opinion piece this week on the Pattullo Bridge and agreed with all of your points. HUB has been working with the MoTI project team and both the City of New Westminster and Surrey for well over a year advocating for wider cycling facilities on the new bridge and shorter, more efficient connections on both the Surrey and New Westminster side.
We will continue our efforts now that a proponent has been selected.
