Crosswalk coming after Surrey teen's death
A lighted crosswalk is coming to the street where three pedestrians were struck, one of them fatally.
Amarpeet Sivia, 16, was killed and two of her friends hospitalized in September, after a motorcycle hit them when they were walking across 128 Street near 69 Avenue.
The students of Princess Margaret Secondary were jaywalking when they were hit.
The tragedy spurred a call for better crossings in the area.
The city's transportation committee met last Monday and said the city is ready to move forward with a lighted crossing south of 72 Avenue.
Several other measures, including fencing near the school, will also be used to deter teens from jaywalking.
The city says it will begin work on the project in January.
