  • NWEP and the Master Transportation Plan – New Westminster Environmental Partners
    2 Mode Shift The proportion of sustainable mode trips walking cycling transit in New Westminster is relatively high for the Lower Mainland but could be improved As part of the Master Transportation Plan the City should set realistic but ambitious goals for sustainable mode shift 5 years 10 years 20 years in to the future and use these targets as impetus to develop their transportation network 3 The City should have a zero growth policy for automobile traffic The majority of automobile traffic in New Westminster neither initiates in the City nor stops in the City and the benefits to the City are negligible Continued accommodation of increased traffic encourages automobile oriented development in other parts of the region and supports neither the City s goals nor those of TransLink or the region There are two ways to support this type of policy Install a no net flow increase policy supported by metering traffic flow at major entrances to the City through traffic light timing to push the constriction outside of the City where drivers have alternative route choices Install a no net space increase policy where the City will no longer allow any increases in automobile space Any traffic lane increases at one location must be offset by traffic lane reductions through transfer to pedestrian or cyclist only space at other areas 4 Create progressive parking planning policy Create a city wide parking availability use inventory including residential and commercial spaces Work towards zero growth of parking spaces in the City and eventually towards the reduction of spaces per capita Remove the Front Street Parkade when needs met elsewhere Stop subsidizing the building of parking start taxing parking space Use property tax incentives to encourage commercial properties to reduce their employee parking needs 5 Connectivity Prioritize connections of currently disconnected communities with pedestrian friendly greenways Queensborough to the Quayside Quayside to Downtown Uptown to Downtown Sapperton Landing to the Pier Park Glenbrook Ravine to the CVG 6 Continue to support Pedestrian Charter Introduce pedestrian first planning for all new developments limit or eliminate erosion of pedestrian space to accommodate development cost savings Adjust signals lights to better accommodate pedestrian flows not traffic flows Develop and enhance Safe Routes to Schools with real infrastructure improvements instead of lines on maps Crosswalks there is a distinct shortage of crosswalks in residential areas Drivers are less aware of rights of way at corners suggesting markings on pavement are needed Advertising education enforcement campaign to promote pedestrian rights and motor vehicle code at intersections Sidewalk completion in under serviced areas especially in Queensborough 7 Cycling Work towards completion of cycling network Review cycling route plan Get away from grid pattern that does not accommodate cyclist needs i e avoid step hills cyclist friendly intersections avoid cyclist blindspots Support and enhance end of trip infrastructure development Work towards dedicated bike routes with separation from traffic on selected routes 8 Transit Improve connectedness within community Increased bus shelters stable funding to provide shelters with development
