I am very concerned about the number of building projects happening at the same time in Grandview.
There are hundreds of units being built – townhouse as well as single-family homes. There is construction along 24, 26, 28 and 32 avenues, 156, 160, 164 and 168 streets, and others south of 28 Avenue. There will be at least 1,000 new residents coming to this area.
Roads in these areas are already overcrowded; accidents are caused by driver frustration.
Where is Surrey’s plan for widening 24 Avenue and 160 and 168 streets to accommodate these current and future drivers? Developers pay huge sums in development fees. Why are there no plans to upgrade these roads?
With the new pool complex, even more traffic will travel these roads.
More shopping is being built at 24 Avenue and 160 Street again; more traffic will flood this already busy area.
I am not against development, but we need to slow the pace and improve roads. Please do not approve any more developments at this time; let the road systems catch up.
