Improving and Expanding our Road Network
In partnership with the municipalities, TransLink is responsible for the Major Road Network (MRN). Ownership of and operational responsibility for the MRN remains with the respective municipalities. TransLink provides funding for the operations, maintenance and rehabilitation of the MRN, and shares in the cost of eligible capital improvements. TransLink owns and operates the Knight Street Bridge, Pattullo Bridge and Westham Island Bridge. The operations, maintenance and rehabilitation of the Golden Ears Bridge (and it’s associated road network) are contracted to the Golden Ears Crossing General Partnership until 2041.
TransLink’s accomplishments since 1999 have included significant improvements to Metro Vancouver’s network of major arterial roads. At its founding, TransLink was unique among North American transportation agencies by having a fully integrated transit system across all modes, plus responsibilities for a network of major arterial roads that connect many of Metro Vancouver’s 22 municipalities. Since 1999, TransLink provided municipalities with over $250 million to operate and maintain these roads as well as committing over $360 million to fund over 400 improvement projects on a cost-sharing basis.
Completed Roads and Bridges Projects include:
- The Dollarton Bridges in North Vancouver
- The David Avenue Connector in Coquitlam
- The 204th Street Overpass
- The Coast Meridian Overpass in Port Coquitlam
