Impact on our communities

Lower Mainland residents have a lot to lose if the #1 Highway expansion proceeds. In Vancouver, this means a huge influx of traffic on 1st Ave, 12th Ave, and Hastings and through adjoining neighbourhoods. It would also increase the pressure to further widen roads, or even build a new freeway to Downtown, through our communities.

 

Neighbourhoods bordering highway access points will be subject to:

  • Increased traffic and noise;
  • Deterirating local businesses;
  • More debilitating pollution from car exhaust;
  • Land expropriations to accommodate bigger interchanges.

Expanded roadways through our neighbourhoods will destroy our communities, local businesses and our quality of life.

 

This is not smart planning.
