Bus-on-shoulder transit lanes on Highway 99
Completed November 2023.
The Province extended the bus-on-shoulder transit lanes on Highway 99 to make trips by transit quicker and more reliable in advance of construction of the Fraser River Tunnel Project. Bus-on-shoulder means that transit buses use the shoulders along designated areas of highways to travel. Buses now travel in their own area of the road and avoid traffic congestion from Ladner Trunk Road all the way to Highway 17A. These lanes will also tie into the new tunnel to improve overall public-transit reliability.
The project was completed within the approved $12.8-million budget.
