We're planning to improve active transportation along Smithe Street (Richards Street to Thurlow Street).

The proposed upgrades will:

  1. Close major gaps in the existing bike network by providing an east-west connection between the West End and Cambie Bridge.
  2. Create safer intersections for everybody through protected intersections.
  3. Be delivered using a quick-build approach to minimize impacts.
  4. Maintain sufficient vehicle capacity for pre-COVID volumes.
