Across The Lower Mainland

It is not a shock that the majority of the top ten crash sites are located at Trans-Canada Highway on and off ramps. Somewhat surprisingly, Vancouver’s only crash site in the top ten was at Knight Street and SE Marine Drive. The worst sites tend to be located in Burnaby with the very worst registering close to a crash per day.

1) Willingdon Avenue ramps for Trans-Canada Highway
2) Brunette Avenue ramps for Trans-Canada Highway
3) Gaglardi Way ramps for Trans-Canada Highway
4) Southeast Marine Drive and Knight Street
5) 264 Street and 56 Avenue ramps for Trans-Canada Highway
6) Kensington Avenue ramps for Trans-Canada Highway
7) 232 Street and 72 Avenue ramps for Trans-Canada Highway
8) 88 Avenue and King George Boulevard
