Burnaby North Street Upgrade Project

The Burnaby School District is planning to replace Burnaby North Secondary School. To improve safety, accessibility and route connections for pedestrians and cyclists, the school district and the City are collaborating to upgrade Kensington Avenue, Curtis Street and Hammarskjold Drive, adjacent to the school.

The City of Burnaby’s vision is: A world-class city committed to creating and sustaining the best quality of life for our entire community.

The planned infrastructure upgrades for Kensington Avenue, Curtis Street and Hammarskjold Drive, adjacent to Burnaby North Secondary School, will help to move Burnaby toward that vision, with project benefits that will include:

  • Safe routes for children to walk or bike to school
  • Improved vehicle flow
  • Safe and accessible routes for cyclists and pedestrians
  • Finishing a missing link in the urban trail network
  • Increasing choices for non-automobile travel
  • Reducing vehicle emissions that contribute to climate change

For details on what is being upgraded, how the project will affect traffic, and construction details, please view the presentation boards below. These boards were presented at the open house that took place at the Kensington Complex and Arena on Thursday, March 12, 2020.  Minor design changes will be made as a result of neighbourhood feedback to date. Updates to design boards will be added to this project webpage as they become available.
