Vancouver City Council has scheduled a special meeting of its planning and environment committee for tomorrow (January 22nd) at 9:30 am to hear from speakers on their 23-page Rapid Transit Principles for the Broadway Corridor and the UBC Line Rapid Transit report. Kitsilano community activist Mel Lehan will be there with bells on.
Matthew Burrows of the Georgia Straight reported today that Lehan believes that any transit expansion planned for the Broadway corridor should be “safe, friendly, and affordable” but is more concerned about the cost.
Last September, UBC Design Centre for Sustainability senior researcher Patrick Condon told the Georgia Straight that the $2.8 Billion the province pencilled into its 2008 Transportation Plan for a 12-kilometre rapid-transit line from Broadway Station to UBC would make it “the most expensive system we’ve had to date”.
So, Kitsilano.ca readers – who’s for and against as SkyTrain line to UBC along West Broadway?
