It is rather close to Lougheed station, but in order to truly entice commuters it is sensible as anything north of Cameron is quite a walk to Lougheed.
Sorry I know some of you have already mentioned about Cameron Station in the other thread but...I need to say something.
Cameron Station has to be built, have any of those souls planning for this line walked up or down North Road? Nobody walks there, cuz that steep hill is almost a hike from Lougheed Station. It's so steep we almost need an escalator running the entire length...(that's right that might be a good proposal for North Road!!). Plus, there's going to be a major supermarket chain and lots of people moving into the high-rise there. Whoever took that station out has gotta think about it again.
It's also relatively near to the Cameron Rec Centre if you walk down Cameron Road, ahem.
Cameron station will be like how Patterson is with Metrotown and how Gilmore is with Brentwood (or even how Olympic Village station is with City Hall station, even athletes don't have to walk up Cambie to get to City Hall station, come on!).
Anyone want to help me formalize this to get this sent to Translink? Or is there someone reading this. Or anyone want to start a community action team or some petition to get Cameron Station back?
I feel cheated that they put a dozen stations up initially now they only plan to build 6-8 stations. And as a side note, no school along the Evergreen Line is no longer within walking distance to any station. They've already left out easy access for the 3 schools, Port Moody town centre (hospital, city hall, rec centres, condos, senior's facilities) on Guildford Way by going down Barnet. Now even Port Moody Secondary (bus riders/drivers will know how many school kids use the B-Line stop now), and the condos dwellers on North Road and Guildford are left out.
