Terminal Improvement Plan Presented

Friday, January 14, 2000
A draft long-term plan for terminal improvements at Horseshoe Bay was presented by BC Ferries president & CEO Bob Lingwood at a public council meeting in West Vancouver. The Horseshoe Bay development plan includes: · An expanded vehicle holding compound to reduce traffic congestion and queuing on the Upper Levels Highway, · A new ticketing/administration building incorporating recommendations from West Vancouver's advisory design panel, · A new parkade with 350 public parking spaces and · A terminal maintenance facility beside Berth 3. "We've put a great deal of effort into addressing the concerns expressed by the community, while meeting the corporation's operating requirements at Horseshoe Bay," said Lingwood. "This plan represents a long-term solution to the lack of terminal space at Horseshoe Bay and the need for improved safety and traffic flow. It is also designed to help alleviate traffic congestion within the community."
