Fulford Hill Upgrade Plans - Critique, 2013 April

Fulford Hill Upgrade Plans - Critique, 2013 April

Ratings: (0)|Views: 64|Likes:
Submission, SSI Ferries Advisory Committee meeting, 2013 April 11.

BC Ferries has, in its plans to upgrade the Fulford terminal and hill, failed in its 2011 July and 2013 February plans to accommodate pedestrians and cyclists on the roadway serving the terminal.

This upgrade will last for 20-30 years. Road users on foot and bicycle must have a wide enough, well-marked corridor along the road to ensure their safety.
