Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts says she and city staff will be meeting with residents along Colebrook Road in about a week, after the surveillance cameras go up.
"This is the first measure that's going in," she said Wednesday. The plan, she explained, is to "then take a step back" and take a look at how to improve public safety in the entire Colebrook area, as well as Panorama Ridge.
A crew was busy digging holes for the street light posts on Wednesday, along a dead-end stretch in the 12500-block of Colebrook Road.
"The installation of 10 street light wooden poles will commence and finish tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon," said Tara Foslien, a communications officer in the mayor's office. "On Friday Cobra electricians will put up the wiring and install the service base."
Watts said cameras will be fitted onto the poles. She ordered these $80,000 improvements to Colebrook Road after the bodies of Brett Sheldon Lietz, 54, and Nicole Madelynn Brochu, 40, were found. Police believe they were shot where they fell.
Two small white wooden crosses, in their memory, have been erected alongside the desolate stretch of road, not far from where the work crew was busy preparing the postholes. "May God be with you," is written on Lietz' cross, while a rosary hangs from Brochu's cross, below the message "You will be in our hearts forever."
A Surrey Mountie on patrol found the pair near 125A Street along Colebrook Road on March 13. Police have yet to identify a suspect in their murders, and those of two other bodies found recently along that same stretch of road.
The charred body of 29-year-old Delta resident Amritpal Saran was found in the 12100-block of Colebrook Road on Feb. 24, and the body of Jaskaran Singh Sandhu, 26, was found in some grass beside Colebrook Road, in the 12300-block, on Jan. 28th.
