Surrey truck parking plan reaches a roadblock

by Truck West

SURREY, B.C. – Plans for a new 77-acre truck park along the Little Campbell River in South Surrey could be in jeopardy.

Peace Arch News reported that proponents behind the plans have withdrawn their rezoning application, and that the company that owns the land is now looking at other uses for the site.

Environmental groups in the area voiced opposition to the plan for a truck parking area, citing concerns for pollutants near the Little Campbell River. Traffic issues and food security along 16 Ave. near 192 Street were also points of contention against the plan.

Langley Township council voted to delay making a decision on the project until they were presented with a more detailed plan.
