In 2010, Burnaby began developing new street standards for all the streets in their four Town Centres. They went back to first principles to think about how to design the entire street for all modes, ages, and abilities. The objective was to create that were both attractive and functional, and would reflect the City's the environmental, social, and economic goals. Burnaby's unique designs are intended for application to entire neighbourhoods, not just a few high-profile streets, and drawn on best practices from around the world.
Stuart Ramsey has been a transportation engineer for three decades, working in both the public and private sector. He has worked at the City of Burnaby for a dozen years, and is presently Manager, Transportation Planning. Stuart is a core member of the multi-disciplinary team that developed the new street standards.

|11.12.2014 :: QUAD 2015 Update - Investing in our Transportation Evolution
The QUAD Conference is an annual transportation conference held in the Pacific Northwest that provides a forum for transportation professionals to network, exchange ideas, discuss best practices, share research and showcase recent projects. The general focus is on land-based transportation, such as walking, cycling, transit, goods movement and vehicles. A wide variety of topics are covered, including planning, analysis, design, construction, maintenance, operations, safety, technology and financing, among others.
The theme for the 2015 QUAD Conference is "Investing in our Transportation Evolution". Many trends are reshaping the transportation industry‘s landscape, such as social media, autonomous vehicles, and the shift towards active transportation. Discover the innovative ways that transportation professionals are leading this evolution, and how the public and private sectors are investing in this change.
This year, the QUAD Conference is pleased to welcome Pro Walk Pro Bike Pro Place as our partners. The Pro Walk Pro Bike Pro Place Conference will be held in Vancouver in 2016 with the theme of “Better Health through Active Transportation.” To provide a hint of what is to come in 2016, a few sessions, tours and workshops will be added to the QUAD Conference to highlight the link between transportation and health.
