Snow and Ice Removal Continues

Posted January 16, 2017

City crews and equipment will be working this week to:

  • Clear catch basins in anticipation for this week’s thawing and rainfall events
  • Clear wheelchair ramps and bus stops of compacted snow and ice
  • Sweep and clear main roadways and priority routes of sand abrasives

Remove snow from catch basins and storm drains. Keeping catch basins and storm drains on your street clear of snow helps prevent flooding when snow melts. Report problems to our 24-hour service line at 604-294-7200.

Locate catch basins using the Burnaby Map:

  1. Select Layers button
  2. Expand Engineering Operations option > Infrastructure
  3. Select Storm > Catchbasin > Zoom into your street

Motorists are advised to be prepared for changing road conditions. Attention should be paid to water pooling around roadways due to forecasted rainfall this week.

Hazardous conditions, downed trees, potholes, and localized flooding can be reported to our 24-hour Emergency Dispatch at 604-294-7200. Non-emergency requests can be reported to 604-294-7460. We appreciate your patience as we work towards removing snow and ice in as many areas as possible. View Snow and Ice Control Information and Our Role as a City.

Velodrome “Grind” Trail on Burnaby Mountain

– One of Burnaby’s hidden gems.

Workout in your own backyard! The Velodrome Trail is a 1,400 metre long route that begins from the gravel parking lot at the Doug Drummond trailhead located just north of the Harry Jerome Sports Centre on the north side of Barnet Highway.
Hikers’ experience natural forests through the gradual (average grade 20%) 240 vertical  metre elevation climb. Reaching the hillside base are the impressive 500 timber stairs that wind up the steep slope and into Pandora Trail. The trail continues until it enters the open meadow below Horizons Restaurant and there you discover the outstanding towering Kamui Mintara totems, reach the highest point of the route and savour the breathtaking views of Burrard Inlet and Indian Arm.

Trailhead signs are located at each end of the trail and contain a topographic trail map, detailed trail information and trail safety tips.

You can return to the car park down the same route, which takes about 25 minutes (depending on your pace), or enjoy a longer 9.4 km loop that uses the Trans Canada Trail, Cougar Creek Trail, Barnet Trail and Mountain Air Trail.
