BC PArkway
Accessibility and safety improvements are coming to the BC Parkway.

 

I’ve got good news if you cycle or walk along this 26-kilometre, multi-use path. We are making safety and accessibility improvements along the BC Parkway which connects Surrey, New Westminster, South Burnaby and Vancouver.

These improvements include:

  • Realignment of the BC Parkway, away from darker areas and bushes and closer to the road at Nanaimo Station, and along Slocan and Rupert streets.
  • New lighting on parts of the parkway in Vancouver, New Westminster and Surrey for increased visibility for BC Parkway users.
  • A new designated route at Nanaimo and Patterson SkyTrain stations to separate cyclists from vehicles and pedestrians.
  • Widened and paved paths, with new ramps replacing steps at Slocan and Rupert Streets. This improves accessibility for parents with strollers, people in wheelchairs and scooters, and cyclists.

Minor detours will be in place at specific sections of the BC Parkway during construction. Cyclists should watch for signs along the corridor.
