The BC Government completed the widening of Mount Lehman Road from two lanes to four, adding new bike lanes and sidewalks, enhancing lighting and improving Simpson Road, Marshall Road and Marshall Road Extension intersections.
“The Surrey Board of Trade is pleased that the BC Government has completed this project. The Abbotsford International Airport is an important regional airport for the South Fraser Economic Region,” said Anita Huberman, CEO of the Surrey Board of Trade. “However, there is a transit and transportation crisis – we need a comprehensive plan for transportation planning for the South Fraser Economic Region, including improvements to road/rail access points from Surrey to the Abbotsford International Airport.
“1.5 million people are moving to Metro Vancouver by 2050, much of this population will live, work, learn and play from Surrey to Chilliwack. That is why the Surrey Board of Trade is continuing our call for a South Fraser Inter-Regional Economic Transportation Task Force.”
“The BC Government has a leadership opportunity to immediately create and fund this task force, creating an action plan in one year’s time.”
