Site preparation for new Sapperton Pump Station UNDERWAYSite preparation for new Sapperton Pump Station UNDERWAY<div class="ExternalClass4365585C6F494CA39926887557389F3A"><p>Site preparation for the new Sapperton Pump Station at the foot of Cumberland Street in New Westminster is now underway. The first phase of this project includes soil remediation. Construction of the pump station will follow and is scheduled for completion in 2019. As there will be no public access to the site, cyclists and pedestrians should plan alternate routes between Sapperton Landing and Spruce Street. </p><p>Sapperton Landing will remain open and can be accessed from Cumberland Street. Park visitors should expect to encounter construction crews and equipment; and are reminded to follow posted safety signs and the directions of traffi­c control personnel.</p><p>The existing pump station has been in place since the 1970s. It needs to be replaced to address the age of the infrastructure and the growing population. The new pump station site will include a public washroom, plaza, parking, seating, viewing areas and an extension to the Brunette-Fraser Regional Greenway. For information on the project, call 604-432-6200.</p></div>TrueGP0|#476d69ef-8727-441b-a5fc-19488e320266;L0|#0476d69ef-8727-441b-a5fc-19488e320266|Brunette-Fraser Regional Greenway;GTSet|#ef6bfa32-7824-496c-b2c2-24278fe7b36a
