Location and Proposed Improvements follow:

Spirit Trail at Bridge Road adjacent to Park Royal South

  • Spirit Trail Etiquette sign and way finding signs to: Ambleside, North Vancouver, Capilano River Trail and Vancouver

Bridge Road and Taylor Way

  • Road signs are needed

Bridge Road - east end of bridge over river

  • Install a pedestrian/bicycle crosswalk

Bridge Road - beginning of ramp up to LGB

  • Sign to Marine Drive East and one indicating that the ramp to the LGB is a 2-way multi-purpose path

Ramp up to LGB from Bridge Road

  • Change to 2-way multi-purpose pathway and widen if necessary

Junction of ramp up to LGB and sidewalk to LGB

  • Replace existing sign with one indicating two-way multi-purpose pathway and directional signs to Park Royal, West Vancouver and Marine Drive East

Sidewalk leading to the west side of LGB

  • Widen to become a two-way multi-purpose pathway
  • Install a safety barrier where the pathway is directly adjacent to the traffic lane or as an interim measure paint the curb on the top and the side
  • Ensure sufficient lighting of the pathway
  • Provide a better sloped access curb for cyclists from North Vancouver who choose to ride in the cloverleaf and cross traffic lanes coming from West Vancouver

Entry to the pedestrian underpass on the west side of the LGB

  • Add to existing sign “Caution, two-way traffic, - cyclists please dismount”
  • Sign to North Vancouver via Marine Drive East

Where the sidewalk currently joins the west-side LGB separated multi-use pathway

  • Sign indicating one-way cycling traffic to Vancouver
  • Move concrete bulwark to give more width and paint it

Entry to pedestrian underpass on east side

  • Add sign “Caution, two-way traffic - cyclists please dismount”
  • Sign to Vancouver and West Vancouver

Where the sidewalk currently joins the east-side LGB separated multi-use pathway

  • No entry sign for cyclists

Sidewalk from the east side multi-use pathway on LGB to Marine Drive East

  • Widen where required for a multi-use pathway and smooth out sudden descending grade change
  • Install a safety barrier where the pathway is directly adjacent to the traffic lane or as an interim measure paint the curb on the top and the side
  • Ensure sufficient lighting of the pathway

Shared roadway to Bridge Road below the LGB parallel to and just to the east of it

  • Fix the drainage problem near Bridge Road
  • Remove no entry sign at old gate and replace with shared car/bicycle sign and an official cars only sign
  • Sign to North Vancouver via Marine Drive East

Marine Drive East from LGB to Capilano Road

  • Include a marked bike lane with bicycle decals indicating eastbound traffic
  • Bicycles as well as buses should be allowed in the right lane at the junction of Capilano Road and Marine Drive
  • Route signs for cyclists to get to Capilano Road North from Marine Drive via McGuire Avenue

Marine Drive West from Capilano Road to the multi-use pathway leading to LGB

  • Maintain existing marked bike lane

Multi-use pathway leading to the west side of LGB

  • Remove graffiti from existing signs or replace them
  • Sign to West Vancouver
  • Bicycle route signs to Capilano Road bike lanes via Fullerton Avenue
  • widen pathway where feasible

Junction of multi-use pathway leading to the west side of the LGB and sidewalk coming from Capilano Bridge Eastbound

  • Widen and reduce steepness
  • Install a protective barrier on the east side of the multi-use pathway at the junction to prevent cyclists from falling into the blackberry patch
  • Move the existing sign to Vancouver and North Vancouver closer to the junction

Proposed multi-use pathway from the west end of new Capilano Bridge to Taylor Way

  • Install a wheelchair accessible ramp down to 6th Street with way finding signs to Taylor Way at Clyde Avenue, Capilano River Trail, Park Royal South and the Spirit Trail
  • Install a safety barrier where the pathway is directly adjacent to the traffic lane
  • Ensure sufficient lighting of the pathway
