As envisioned in Connecting Burnaby, Burnaby’s Transportation Plan, the City of Burnaby is improving the current cycling network in the Edmonds Town Centre area. This spring, construction of neighbourhood bikeways and other cycling improvements along five corridors in the Edmonds area will take place using a rapid implementation (“quick build”) process, which allows the project team to observe, collect data and make adjustments based on community feedback.
As part of the first phase of the project, we’re encouraging residents and cyclists to try out the upgraded cycling routes starting in May and provide feedback about their experience so we can make improvements for all road users. We welcome your ideas, suggestions and concerns throughout the pilot period, which runs from May until September.
These improvements will expand Burnaby’s local and regional cycling network connections and provide a complete, safe and comfortable cycling network for people of all ages and abilities (AAA). This project also helps encourage and promote cycling as a sustainable and active mode of travel for everyone.
We’re making these improvements in support of the City’s Climate Action Framework and in alignment with Burnaby’s Transportation Plan, Connecting Burnaby. The project is funded in part through TransLink’s regional cycling investments and will take place over two phases.
