A new snow and Ice policy has been adopted by Council for roads, pedestrian stroll, sidewalks and valley trail. The updated policy helps towards reducing the inconvenience and hazards of winter conditions for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists and to facilitate the operation of transit and emergency service vehicles.
snow clearing on municipal roads is prioritized as per Council Policy A40
Maintenance of private roads, such as those through strata complexes, is the responsibility of private strata councils.

Traffic lights along Highway 99 are fitted with smart technology to alleviate congestion. During busy periods, green light times may extend to help keep traffic moving.
