Kirkstone Park to Salop Trail cycling route

We're working to connect the Lynn Valley and Lynn Creek town centres with a continuous cycling route of multi-use paths and neighbourhood bike pathways through the District.

Once completed, the Lynn Valley Town Centre to Lynn Creek Town Centre Cycling Route will provide a safe and convenient, well-lit corridor that will help encourage people to cycle to the town centres.

Thank you for taking our online survey and sharing your thoughts about the Kirkstone Park to Salop Trail section of this route. Your input will help us finalize designs for each of the segments and move forward with construction later in 2022.

The project's scope includes a multi-use path (MUP) passing through Kirkstone Park, improvements to the Kirkstone Road and Rufus Drive intersection, neighbourhood bikeways along Rufus Drive, Brooksbank Avenue and Cloverley Street and a multi-use path along a section of Salop trail, from Cloverley Street to Shavington Street.

This project also includes wayfinding signage for users to navigate to key destinations along the route.

Currently out of scope for this project but planned for the future are the segments located within the boundary of the City of North Vancouver and around Brooksbank Elementary.

Background

In 2017, Council identified the Lynn Valley Town Centre to Lynn Creek Town Centre Cycling Route as a priority route. Council later reconfirmed the route as a priority at a workshop in 2021.

Completion of the Lynn Valley to Lynn Creek Town Centre Cycling Route will provide a continuous, safe corridor for cyclists. In addition, pedestrian and cyclist visibility will be improved with additional lighting and the replacement of old light fixtures with LED lights where possible to reduce maintenance and energy costs.
