VANCOUVER, B.C. — TransLink has compiled a wish list of transportation projects it would like to see finished over the next two to three decades.
The list, focusing on the Greater Vancouver Area, includes $9-billion in road and transit projects, and varies greatly from a $10-billion wish list recently released by the provincial Ministry of Transportation.
Clive Rock, strategic planner for TranskLink, says the list was compiled over the past few months and tested during focus groups to determine how much public support the ideas would have.
“It’s kind of a work in progress,” Rock tells local media. “It’s just a compilation of what has come out during the last decade or so of planning.”
Some of the larger projects identified on TransLink’s wish list include: Pitt River Bridge capacity improvement, $200 million; Port Mann Bridge upgrade, $500 million; Cape Horn interchange, $120 million; North Fraser perimeter road, $80 million; South Fraser perimeter road, $500 million; George Massey Tunnel and Hwy. 99 capacity improvements, $500 million; Low Level Road upgrade, $250 million.
