Union-Adanac Corridor

The Union-Adanac Corridor extends from downtown Vancouver to Boundary Road and connects to Burnaby‚Äôs Francis Union Bikeway. It's one of the busiest bike routes in the city and a crucial part of our cycling network.

We are planning to make changes at key locations between Gore Avenue and Kamloops Street to improve safety and comfort for people walking and cycling.

In the future, we'll continue to improve other parts of the Corridor, including the sections further east between Rupert Street and Boundary Road. 

What's happening

We're currently analyzing the feedback we received at our January 2017 open houses and online questionnaire. We'll provide updates on the project in the coming months. Thank you for sharing your thoughts so far on the proposed spot improvements.

Project goals

  1. Improve safety and comfort for people of all ages and abilities walking and cycling along Union Street and Adanac Street 
  2. Improve visibility at intersections and crossings to reduce conflicts between all modes of transportation
  3. Further calm traffic in key areas to increase safety for all modes of transportation, while accommodating access needs of residences and local businesses
  4. Enhance the Corridor with new landscaping and lighting improvements at key intersections
