Back in late October, we shared the news that the BC Parkway was to undergo some much needed improvements, since its opening 27 years ago.
The BC Parkway is 26 km of multi-use path that connects Surrey, New Westminster, South Burnaby, and Vancouver. Because it is a multi-use path, it is important to make the parkway safe and accessible for all kinds of travelers, whether you are walking, cycling, or running around wagging your tail (can’t forget our furry friends!).
The 2013 BC Parkway repaving project is now complete! We’ve fixed up a few areas that were previously rough or unpaved:
- North and south of the Southridge Drive overpass, near the Burnaby/New Westminster border
- Between Imperial Street and the Metrotown SkyTrain Station
- South of Southpoint Drive
- South of Rumble Street
- West side of London Place
Based on input we heard during the BC Parkway Upgrades conceptual design, TransLink is planning to do more state of good repair work on the BC Parkway in 2014. We’ll keep you posted!
