Transit and transportation are vital for a strong economy. They are critical to the livability and affordability of Metro Vancouver. As our economy continues to grow, we will need to accommodate another one million people and a half-million new jobs over the next 30 years. And every one of them will need to move in, out and within our region efficiently, affordably and sustainably.
Planning for the future is already underway with pre-construction and design work advancing for the Broadway extension and Surrey LRT projects. And this year, TransLink will start the process of updating the Regional Transportation Strategy by asking the region to chart a long-term path forward to meet the growing demands on the transportation system and network.
TransLink’s CEO Kevin Desmond will provide an update to members and guests of the BC Construction Roundtable on the major investments in Metro Vancouver’s transit and transportation network, and will detail the organization’s future and how it is taking action to meet the needs of the region’s growing economy and population.
The British Columbia Construction Roundtable is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide an independent forum for key decision-makers of all sectors of the BC construction industry to learn, share information, and examine issues for the future growth of the industry. For 23 years the organization has provided networking opportunities for people working in the construction industry.
