Kirk & Co. has been working on the replacement of the Pattullo Bridge since 2013. Initially, our team supported TransLink, the City of New Westminster, and the City of Surrey (The Pattullo Bridge Review Partners) as they worked together to review and evaluate alternatives to rehabilitate or replace the aging Pattullo Bridge and determine a preferred alternative to meet the needs of the communities connected by the bridge, as well as the broader region.

Kirk & Co. worked with the Review Partners to develop and implement an extensive public consultation program that included small group meetings and open houses in New Westminster and Surrey, as well as online feedback opportunities.

In 2016, we supported TransLink in designing and implementing two rounds of public consultation that sought input from residents, local and regional stakeholders, and bridge users about community connections, including road network improvements and pedestrian and cycling connections on both sides of the bridge in New Westminster and Surrey.

Transportation Investment Corporation, a provincial Crown corporation, is now delivering and overseeing the Pattullo Bridge Replacement Project. Kirk & Co. continues to provide strategic advice and communications support to the project team through the construction phase.

The Pattullo Bridge is a key connection between the communities of Surrey and New Westminster.

The new four-lane bridge will provide important improvements for everyone using the crossing, including people driving, cycling or walking, and communities on either side of the bridge.

The Kirk & Co. team is very effective at designing and implementing comprehensive consultation programs tailored to the project.
