TFN implements local resident "Pedestrian Priority" on Roadways

TFN implements local resident "Pedestrian Priority" on Roadways

Canada NewsWire

TSAWWASSEN LANDS, BC, March 25, 2020 /CNW/ - Tsawwassen First Nation Executive Council has enacted a COVID-19 Safety Plan for Roads and Pedestrian Access which grants people the right-of-way to occupy roadways on Tsawwassen Lands.

Pedestrians will now be given priority access on all Tsawwassen Lands to ensure they're able to practice safe social and physical distancing, while promoting their physical and mental well-being. Access and connection to the land and water is grounded in Tsawwassen values and culture.

This means that pedestrians may now occupy TFN roadways, whether or not there is a pedestrian sidewalk, and that cars must yield to pedestrians, except where they may pass.

Executive Council made the decision with concern for the health of its Members and leaseholders, to promote proper social distancing measures established by the Provincial Government (2 metres/6 feet).

Indigenous communities have disproportionately been impacted in previous historical pandemics, including the 1919 flu pandemic and the 2009 pH1N1 pandemic.

For that reason, residential Tsawwassen Lands are open for local traffic only. All residents who live outside the TFN Member Community Housing Area are requested not to access that area. The TFN Member Community Housing Area extends largely along the waterfront corridor of Tsawwassen Drive. Please see the map below for the delineation details.

The speed limits in residential areas on Tsawwassen Lands are 30 km/h.

Only people who live and work on residential Tsawwassen Lands will have pedestrian and vehicular access, except for deliveries and services.

Residential construction job sites will not be impacted at this time, but the safety measures that have been implemented by this order must be followed.

"Local Traffic Only" signs will be erected at the following locations:

  • Tsawwassen Drive and Blue Heron Way
  • Blue Heron Way and Salish Sea Drive
  • 41B Street and Salish Sea Drive
  • Stahaken access intersections
  • Tsawwassen Drive South and Highway 17
  • 52nd Avenue and Highway 17
