Municipalities

  • CNV Update
    • Spirit Trail tunnel- plans are underway but no sign of construction yet and not certain whether there will be a tunnel or overpass at the Marina.
    • East Keith and Grand Boulevard - paved on east side 1.5 m wide for one way bicycle travel only - no intersection crossing yet but hope they will be straight and painted green.
    • Delegation to Council on AAA bike lanes - planned for October 3 - Tony won't be available but will check with Heather to ask her to make the presentation.
    • 23rd St recently paved but no bike lanes going east from Westview.
    • multi-purpose path planned for on Bewicke - section between 2nd St and Marine Drive could potentially be for cylists and pedestrians only.e
  • DNV Update
    • Another discussion about two-way travel on east side of IWMB as cyclists still want to ride south on the east side but MoTI won't allow it because it is not wide enough for safe two-way travel.
    • An underpass is needed on the north end to connect to the bike route on Barrow St. and one is being studied for the south end of the bridge
    • We should write a HUB letter requesting an underpass at the north end of the bridge.
    • DNV Public Library bike racks- Tony found out that they are not interested at this time.
    • Lynn Valley Road bike lanes - construction to start October - Dragana said MoTI section under west side of the Hwy1 underpass is being designed – a multi-use is planned under the east side of the underpass.
    • Highland Blvd repaving - can be done now that the watermain is finished – we sent a letter and they plan consultation but no paving until 2017.

    • M.Bond motion for a protected/connected DNV bike network. The public agenda will be available on the Thursday before the motion which is scheduled to come before Council soon.
