COQUITLAM (NEWS1130) – Have you wondered what that giant new building is next to Highway One at the Cape Horn Interchange?
It’s called the Consolidated Regional Transportation Management Centre and is the new hub for everything traffic-related in the Lower Mainland.
“It will house all Ministry of Transportation offices in the Lower Mainland, including the Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement Unit, the Passenger Transportation Branch, and the customer service centre for the toll operations [on the new Port Mann Bridge],” explains Mike Proudfoot, CEO of the project.
He believes traffic will now be better monitored around the region.
“[The facility] will also include a Regional Traffic Management Centre that builds on the legacy of the [Vancouver] Olympic Games, where all agencies coordinate their traffic management information into a single facility.”
The centre is paid for by the province, Transport Canada, and TransLink.
