Casting some light on the Canada Line

It’s an installation the city hopes will shed some light on the Canada Line and the preferences of Richmond residents.

On Thursday, locals are invited to check out some special effect lighting of selected section of the $2.05-billion Richmond-Airport-Vancouver rapid transit line.

Richmondites can check it out the single guideway section’s worth of display, courtesy Lightworks, near the Real Canadian Superstore, at No. 3 and Leslie roads.

The City of Richmond is currently investigating streetscape improvements, and the lighting is part of a demonstration aimed at gathering public input.

The display will be up starting tonight (Thursday) through Monday Nov. 5.

The decision to incorporate special lighting will also depend on safety, cost, funding, visual impact, and public and council assessment.

The Canada Line is scheduled to be complete by November 2009, connecting Richmond city centre with the airport and downtown Vancouver.
