Ward 11 News: SWBRT Updates

  • Share

Ward 11 official website 
 
City Council rejected my formal request to review the design, cost, and need associated with Phase 2 of the Southwest Bus Rapid Transit (SWBRT) project. Phase 2 is the section of the route that is south of Glenmore Trail.
 
With a newly elected council, now would have been the ideal time to take stock of the project without incurring any extra costs to taxpayers. I am disappointed that most of the debate regarding this project was held in secret away from the eyes and ears of the local residents who will be impacted the most. Many issues such as safety concerns, detailed project costs and lack of ridership remain unanswered.
 
I am committed holding City Administration accountable for the management of this major construction project and its future operation including what the cost-benefit will ultimately be.
 
The construction of this project will have a massive traffic impact on Ward 11 and I want you to know that I will do everything that I can to make sure that Administration is sharing project staging information (road closures, construction noise and hours) with citizens in a timely way.
 
Despite repeated requests, information regarding the construction of the project has been slow in coming from City Administration. I have asked for bi-monthly meetings with Administration so that I can keep you informed. I will keep asking for information and what I do receive, I will share.
