Broadway Subway Expansion:
Last fall the Province announced that the Broadway subway expansion will include an end-of-line station and bus loop at the corner of Arbutus and Broadway/8th Avenue – just a short distance to our school.
Our community supports the expansion of rapid transit along the Broadway corridor but was concerned about insufficient consultation prior to the final decision on the location of the station and bus loop.
St. Augustine’s formed an advisory committee to work with the subway project team to find ways of reducing the safety, health and security impacts of this large transit hub, particularly on the 400 children who attend our school and the Montessori program.
After several months of review and discussion, we are proposing a number of constructive and relatively low-cost solutions to ensure that the station/bus loop can co-exist with our school and the immediate neighbourhood.
We are calling on school parents, parishioners and their friends to support this petition that will be shared with key government and transit partners responsible for this project.
Please indicate your support here. Thank you.
