The CBLCA Transportation Committee made a submission to the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) about the City’s Environmental Project Report (EPR) on the conversion of the Moodie Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) station to a Light Rail Transit (LRT)hub. Both the EPR and CBLCA’s submission will inform the Ministry’s Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP).
In our submission, we highlight concerns about:
- The lack of detail overall in the EPR
- The City’s inadequate plans for stormwater management and protections for wildlife movements within the corridor
The Committee continues to work with the City and other organizations in our hopes to improve on a number of aspects of the project and its impacts on volume of traffic at intersections, roadways, pedestrian and cycling connectivity points, and our community overall.
As part of our ongoing efforts and to hear your ideas and opinions, we are planning a community meeting on the LRT project this May. At this meeting, we will update the community on project details, as well as hear from representatives from the LRT team and others, as available.
Look for more information in upcoming newsletters.
