Project Update, September 25, 2023: Round 2 Engagement on Now

During the first round of community engagement for the Queensborough Transportation Plan project, we heard what you feel is working well and where there are challenges with transportation in Queensborough.

Based on what we heard in the first round of engagement, the project team has created a series of guiding principles, strategic themes, and priority projects for potential inclusion in the final Plan.

  • the proposed priority routes for walking, cycling and rolling,
  • priority bus stops for new amenities (such as benches, shelters, etc.)
  • the proposed priority intersections and streets for improvements,
  • network options,

In September and October 2023, the project team is hosting several engagement activities to encourage community members and interest holders to review the draft priority locations and potential projects and provide feedback.

What's Happening?

The City of New Westminster is developing a Transportation Plan for the Queensborough neighbourhood. Queensborough is a vibrant, growing community in our city. Developing the Transportation Plan is an opportunity to identify and fill the gaps in our transportation network. The Plan will guide the prioritization of how the City spends money on transportation initiatives in the community. The goal is to ensure the safe, sustainable, and accessible movement of people and goods is supported. The Plan will build on existing local and regional plans, including the Queensborough Community Plan and the City’s Master Transportation Plan.

The City is committed to developing a transportation network that encourages and prioritizes sustainable transportation, such as walking and riding transit. In alignment with the City’s Seven Bold Steps for Climate Action, strategies and recommendations in the Transportation Plan will help make walking, cycling, and transit in Queensborough more convenient and accessible for residents and visitors.

The Transportation Plan will include strategies, actions, and projects to improve transportation in Queensborough over the short, medium, and long term. It is important we hear from as many community members as possible so that we can prioritize the improvements that are most pressing first. Over the next 12 months, there will be several opportunities for community members to participate in the planning process and provide input, including online and in-person consultation.
