New sidewalks and streetlights for Lougheed Hwy
Another step towards improving walkability in the area is being taken as the City of Burnaby will be paving new sidewalks on both sides of Lougheed Hwy from Douglas Rd to east of Holdom Ave. The project will also see the installation of streetlights between Douglas Rd and Sperling Ave. The total cost of the project will be $900, 000 to be shared 50/50 with TransLink. Sidewalks have been sorely needed along that stretch of Lougheed since the 90s as people (myself included) trying to get to the bus stops along that stretch have had to walk on the shoulder along Lougheed Hwy with cars whizzing by.
