The Provincial Government is developing a new 10-year transportation plan and wants to know your top three priorities for transportation infrastructure.
We will be making a submission to the government and want that submission to reflect the priorities of our members and other people cycling throughout BC. Knowing your priorities will also help us make the case to the government for increased investment million in cycling infrastructure, maintenance and education. In our cycling strategy, the BCCC recommends the Province invest $75 million per year in upgrading cycling facilities on Provincial highways and bridges as well as providing increased funding for cycling networks in communities around BC.
Please review the cycling improvements below and add ones that are not included. Please state the issues and suggest possible solutions. You don't have to be too prescriptive as the Province will likely study several options. Now is the time to dream big as the budget for the plan will be in the billions of dollars. Try to propose solutions that work for cyclists of all ages and abilities as well as pedestrians.
Then, between Oct. 14 and Dec. 12, let the Province know what your priorities are.
