Templeton Area Redevelopment Update

Construction Activities: week of October 19, 2020

Site work on the Templeton Area Redevelopment continues. Work is now underway to create the Templeton Corridor and conduct early works in preparation for development of the future facility. Construction activities for this phase are scheduled to take place through mid-2021. Learn more about what to expect during construction here.

As work progresses, we remain committed to keeping you updated on all scheduled construction and onsite activities. Please encourage your neighbors to subscribe to these updates if they haven’t already by emailing [email protected].


Work this week will continue on the new multi-use pathway (MUP), immediately adjacent to the fence line. In addition, we are currently working on several noise abatement measures including sourcing noise blankets and replacing the backup beeper on the orange backhoe, pending assessment by an electrician.

We greatly appreciate the feedback we received from several residents of Wellington Crescent last week. We have shared this feedback directly with our executive team and the project team and will continue to do so as we explore additional mitigation efforts. We will also provide more information soon on how the broader community can provide feedback.

Our new community liaison Pam Ryan also joins us this week. Last week, Pam began reaching out to community members to address their concerns. She will now be working directly with the project team and community members to address challenges, and she will be on site when necessary. To reach out to Pam, please send an email to [email protected].


Work this week includes:

  • Stripping the topsoil in the vicinity of the MUP
  • Placing lightweight fill around the future Templeton roundabout 
  • Ongoing work associated with hauling gravel and sand to and from site
  • Ongoing compacting along Templeton Street and additional new compaction for the MUP, immediately adjacent to the fence line

Regular onsite equipment includes excavators, backhoe loaders, haul trucks, concrete trucks, compacting equipment, a forklift and a mobile crane. Broadband Travel Alarms are in use on regularly stationed equipment to reduce noise in the area. Please note however that traditional tonal alarms may still be heard on equipment and vehicles that are transiting to and from the site, or equipment that will be onsite for shorter durations.

Our contractor has water trucks attending the site regularly to suppress dust and has also added screening to the YVR / Burkeville perimeter fence line as an additional mitigation.


Construction takes place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Equipment and machinery are turned on after 7:30 a.m. An update will be provided if work is required outside of this timeframe.

Please note plans, activities and onsite equipment are subject to change based on evolving project needs and weather. Given the increased frequency of rain, workers may need to come to the site to monitor erosion and ensure the proper flood protections are performing adequately outside of the normal hours of operation.
