As part of BC’s Restart Plan, the Province announced the launch of a transportation study in the Fraser Valley to help ensure the development of affordable and liveable communities.
“Transportation has been a key policy focus of the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce for many years,” said Colleen Clark, CEO of the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce. “Earlier this year, the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce with the Surrey Board of Trade, Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce, Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce and the South Surrey White Rock Chamber of Commerce advocated for the creation and funding of a South Fraser Inter-Regional Economic Transportation Task Force to investigate and recommend the best possible transportation options for Langley and the growing South of the Fraser Communities. The need for a Regional Transportation Plan, with sustainable funding from all levels of government, for Langley and the South Fraser Economic Region must be given immediate high priority and associated funding. We are pleased that the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will begin this process as part of the BC Restart Plan.”
The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce continues put forward policies detailing the many areas in Langley and in the region that require transportation infrastructure investment.
“We look forward to engaging with the City of Langley, Township of Langley and the Ministry on this new study as we ensure that the Langley’s have the transportation infrastructure that they need as the population growth continues.”
