Council also approved the new York Bikeway from Stephens Street to Seaforth Park. This initiative contributes to the Greenest City Action Plan and Transportation 2040 Plan supporting walking and cycling in Vancouver.
Council approves recommended improvements to Burrard Street Bridge
July 24, 2013 – Council approved recommended improvements to the south end of the Burrard Bridge that will:
- Address a cycling collision hotspot by reducing speed and volumes between Burrard and Cypress Streets
- Help transfer traffic volumes to nearby existing routes and reduce volumes along Cornwall Avenue and Point Grey Road where walking and cycling volumes are expected to increase
- Decrease the travel time for pedestrians and cyclists through the intersection by reducing the maximum number of crossings
- Reduce the footprint of the intersection and provide additional land that could be used for other City initiatives
