VICTORIA – As you’re preparing your shopping, gift and grocery lists for the upcoming holiday season, the Government of B.C. reminds you there’s one more important list to make – and that’s your list of the transportation priorities important to you.

Have your say as the Province develops its new 10-year transportation plan, “B.C. on the Move.” A feedback form and Discussion Guide are available online at: http://engage.gov.bc.ca/transportationplan/

Feedback will be accepted until 4 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 12, 2014.

In meetings to date with local governments and stakeholders, the ministry is hearing a number of common ideas. These include strengthening connections to our Pacific Gateway ports, transit improvements with stronger connections to regional centres, a desire for more rest areas and pull-outs on provincial highways, continued investment in highway four-laning, and support for investments in small airports to increase tourism and help support the fly-in, fly-out work model that is growing in some parts of the province.

The input gathered from this provincewide engagement will be considered along with technical information and input from key stakeholders. “B.C. on the Move”, the new 10-year transportation plan, will be ready in early 2015 and will set out a series of short, medium and longer-term priorities for government.

These priorities will focus on growing the economy, moving goods and people safely and reliably, connecting and strengthening communities, and maximizing collaboration and investment with partners including First Nations, the federal government, local governments, and the private sector.

Add your voice to the thousands who have already participated. Let government know your transportation priorities by taking the survey, and be a part of “B.C. on the Move.” Deadline is Dec. 12, 2014.
