How these upgrades link to Transportation 2040

Improvements to the Burrard Bridge were approved in principle as part of the Transportation 2040 plan, which was adopted by Council in 2012.

Relevant plan directions include:

  1. Improve safety, eliminating transportation-related fatalities
  2. Increase green transportation so that at least two-thirds of all trips on foot, bike, or transit by 2040
  3. Make walking and cycling safe, convenient, and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities
  4. Manage the road network efficiently for all road users

Burrard Bridge and the other False Creek bridges are top priorities for improvement because:

  • Each bridge has unique challenges that can make walking and biking difficult
  • Declining motor vehicle volumes and the timing of required maintenance on all three bridges make it possible to combine improvements for less money

Did you know?

Since we improved the Burrard-Pacific intersection at south end of the bridge in 2014, the number of cycling trips across the bridge grew more than 25 per cent to over 1.3 million annually in 2015.
