Transportation & Cycling

Keeping West Vancouver Sea to Sky on the move

I will make Regional Transit a priority. We will connect Pemberton, Whistler, and Squamish to Metro Vancouver to provide an option for employees in the corridor and to relieve congestion on the Sea to Sky Highway. We will also continue to make Highway 99 safer.  

All across the riding, I hear concerns about transportation – from too much traffic in West Vancouver, to the lack of transit between communities in the north of the corridor. Being able to get around is key to sustaining and managing growth in our communities. That’s why improving transportation in this regions is a priority me.
Thinking beyond the highway: Regional transit

We need to think beyond driving if we are going to sustainably manage growth in our communities. BC Transit recently completed the Sea to Sky Transit Future Plan and I have been working with BC Transit and representatives from local governments and First Nations to lay the groundwork to turn regional transit into a reality.

Transit is critical to a diverse economy and to supporting employers and giving commuters options. Done right, it can also enhance tourism in the corridor by making it easier for people in Vancouver to travel up the corridor to ski, climb, hike, or shop without adding to highway traffic.   

More people taking transit means fewer cars on the roads, which means both less traffic and fewer carbon emissions – a win-win scenario for the environment and the economy.
Safer, more efficient driving

We are investing in the major arteries of our communities so that you can get where you need to go quickly and come home safe: 
  • We recently announced a $60 million expansion of the Lower Lynn Corridor project, which will improve access to North Vancouver and to the Second Narrows Bridge
  • We have spent $6 million in upgrades to the Sea to Sky highway including new speed-based warning signs north of Lions Bay, a digital road condition sign near Alice Lake, and an extended merge lane at Lorimer Road in Whistler.

Promoting safer cycling

The Gran Fondo may only happen once a year, but more and more of us are travelling our roads and highways by bicycle. The BC Liberal government is investing in safety for cyclists and pedestrians, too! 

We have: 
  • installed digital warning signs at Porteau Bluffs to warn drivers when cyclists are present
  • stepped up the road sweeping and paving program to keep the surface bike-friendly
  • added signage to remind motorists and cyclist to “Share the Road”. 
We will add almost 2 kilometers of bicycle and pedestrian pathways as part of the Lower Lynn Corridor Project

The BC Liberal government has committed $2.5 billion in the next three years to making BC’s transportation system faster and safer – an investment that we can make because of our solid track record of balanced budgets.
