City seeks input to improve cycling safety, experience along key routes

Last updated: July 10, 2023

The City of Burnaby is improving the Frances-Union Bikeway, Burnaby Mountain Parkway and Gaglardi Way to make these cycling routes safer for people of all ages and abilities. The Vancouver to SFU Cycling Connection Project aims to better connect these routes to key areas, including Simon Fraser University (SFU), the Union-Adanac Bikeway in Vancouver and other local and regional destinations. 

The project includes: 

  • new multi-use pathways in some sections, including one through Kensington Park
  • new protected bicycle lanes
  • multi-use pathway upgrades, including widening and improving lighting along select segments
  • local street bikeway upgrades
  • intersection improvements

The upgraded facilities would connect to the existing multi-use pathway at the intersection with Gaglardi Way/University Drive loop. 

As part of Phase 1, community members are invited to take an online survey to share their experiences along these routes and provide ideas on how to improve safety and connectivity. The deadline to take the survey is Sunday, August 6.

Community members can also drop by one of the following pop-up events to learn more and talk to the project team:

  • Kensington Park, 6159 Curtis St: 
    • Saturday, July 22, 10am- 2pm
    • Saturday, July 29, 12-4pm
  • UniverCity Town Square, SFU
    • Wednesday, July 26, 3-6 pm

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 City has received a $5.7 million commitment from the federal government for the improvements.
