Highways to Boulevards. Retrofitting the King George...


 It's been renamed a boulevard but The King George still looks and acts like a highway.
Retrofitting the George  is one important step toward transforming Surrey into a world class city. Not just in the City Centre area, but in Newton as well.
 Great examples in the video below, particularly from the 7:00 minute mark onward.

 In Newton we need shorter blocks on the King George. Between 64th and 68th Avenues there are no crosswalks and people die because the temptation to  cross the insanely wide road is just too much. Who wants to walk a half-mile just to use the designated crosswalk?
