Students from the Global Engineering Leadership program in the UBC Faculty of Engineering completed two community based research projects in the summer of 2019. The projects were sponsored by the RPSC Community Visions Committee.
Project One–A study of vehicular traffic along W. 33rd Ave. between Ontario and Main and the traffic along Main St. at the intersection of 33rd. The project reviewed a previous traffic study from 2011 and found significant changes in current traffic volumes compared to those of six years ago. Final Report LM Traffic Study
Project Two–A team of five engineers examined current household waste reduction and recycling practices in the Riley Park area. Using interviews, questionnaires and self-monitoring, the team identified what local residents are currently doing and obtained insights into how recycling practices can be improved. Final Report – Waste Awareness
