The Union-Adanac Corridor extends from downtown Vancouver to Boundary Road and connects to Burnaby’s Francis Union Bikeway. It's one of the busiest bike routes in the city and a crucial part of our cycling network.
We are making 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.
Hundreds of residents provided feedback in January and February via two open houses, online questionnaire, email, and 3-1-1.

Get involved with Green Street gardens
Street gardens are part of the overall improvement of the Union-Adanac Corridor. With the proposed design changes to Union Street, there are a number of opportunities for Green Streets gardens.
Here is our process and anticipated milestones.
Propose recommended designs for safety improvements at open houses and stakeholder meetings
Refine the designs based on public feedback
Meet with Strathcona Residents Association to present proposed design and gather feedback to incorporate in finalized drawings
We are here
Continue improving other parts of the Corridor like the section between Rupert and Boundary streets
Lighting on Union Street
Following discussions with the community, historic-style lighting fixtures and decorative light stands will be added on Union Street between Gore Street and Campbell Street to recognize prior local improvement contributions to lighting.
Upgrading the Corridor addresses our Transportation 2040 goals to:
- Make at least two-thirds of all trips by foot, bike, or public transit by 2040
- Make walking and cycling safe, convenient, and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities
- Manage the road network efficiently for all road users
