Following guidance from the province's Restart BC Plan and new health and safety regulations from WorkSafeBC, we are taking all necessary steps to protect public health and maintain the safety of our employees.
New bike lane pilot projects underway
We are working to provide a complete District-wide cycling network that is safe and efficient for people who use bikes for everyday transportation or leisure, guided by our Official Community Plan (OCP) and our Transportation Plan.
As part of this work, we have recently started two bike lane pilot projects in the District:
Project 1: Highland Boulevard northbound (uphill)
We are installing a bike lane northbound along Highland Boulevard, between Belmont Avenue and Wavertree Road.
This pilot lane is the first piece of what will eventually be a permanent bike lane along the entire length of Highland Blvd, which is identified in our Transportation Plan as a site for on-street bike infrastructure.
Project 2: West Queens Road eastbound
We are installing a bike lane eastbound along West Queens Road, between Woodbine Drive and the new Delbrook Community Recreation Centre.
This pilot lane will connect to the existing lane in front of New Delbrook, and is the next piece of what will eventually be a continuous bike lane along this stretch of Queens Rd, which is identified in our Transportation Plan as a site for on-street bike infrastructure.
