A welder works on steel support beams for the the new Timms Community Centre, adjacent to City Hall on Douglas Crescent. Expected to open in March, 2016, the 35,000-square-foot facility will offer City of Langley residents and visitors a range of amenities, from an indoor walking and running track overlooking a gymnasium, to a weight room, community amenity rooms, a community kitchen and a coffee shop. Originally scheduled to be open in December, 2015, the project was delayed when construction crews encountered a few unexpected hurdles — including an artesian well, interurban rail ties — as they were digging out space for the underground parking lot. The greatest contributor the delay was the discovery of BC Hydro and Telus lines that had to be relocated. The project is expected to cost about $14 million.
