Wide, traffic-calming speed bumps may soon be coming to roads around White Rock’s two elementary schools.

Council last week (Nov. 14) supported a motion by outgoing Mayor Catherine Ferguson to have staff work with Surrey School District to examine and report back on the costs of installing the bumps around White Rock and Peace Arch elementaries; a suggestion by Coun. Helen Fathers to include a look at implementing four-way stops in the area was deemed a friendly amendment.

Coun. Lynne Sinclair asked if installing the bumps along Marine Drive could be re-examined.

“I’m very concerned at the speeds on Marine Drive,” Sinclair said.
