Big trucks will continue to rumble through New Westminster.
The Board of Directors at Translink has declined the City of New Westminster’s request to get truck traffic off three major roadways, and deferred a decision on a fourth.
That means trucks will continue to use East Eighth Avenue, Royal Avenue, and East Columbia Street from Brunette to Braid Street.
A decision on Ewan Avenue is pending.
While the board gets where the city is coming from on this, it says giving the city what it wanted would have had an negative impact on the regional movement of goods, and that can’t be allowed.
