Visit from Mark Halpin

Mark Halpin, Transportation Planner for Port Moody was kind enough to visit us along with Stephen Judd, Manager of Infrastructure Engineering at City of Port Moody. Mark and Stephen took the committee through what's coming up for Port Moody in the next ~2-8 years.

Separated MUP on Moody in front of Rocky Point Park -- sounds nice and will link the bridge directly with city hall/ Klahanie/ Newport/ etc via MUPs.

The city is planning on focusing on separated routes on St.Johns from Moody St. eastward to the Skytrain station in the near future, a ~$5M MUP on the south side of St. Johns from Moody westward to Snake Hill next. These connections will be useful for local traffic going to the high school and to Skytrain/ WCE. After that the city wants to improve connections up Snake Hill; unfortunately these are slated to use the steep route via Seaview rather than the more steady grade on Clarke.

Within around two years the city wants a bike storage facility near Moody Centre skytrain. This will be designed for security, Compass card accessed and have room for 40-60 bikes. The City's plan is to spend around $400K on this with funding from TransLink.

Sadly it looks like the separated lane on Clarke that the City was talking about last year is now deprioritized. This may (AH speculates) be because the city still wants that HOV lane to get traffic out of projected developments around the Andres site, but perhaps there are other reasons. The committee let Mark know that this route is used heavily by commuter and recreational cyclists (as per Strava heatmap data), and needs to be improved.

Letter of support for Coquitlam Sharpe bike route

Committee determined that this is a nice route that will help people south of Lougheed get up to Coquitlam skytrain. Jack to provide letter of support

New Tri-Cities bike maps

Look pretty good! Committee members now have thousands of maps to hand out at community events and elsewhere.

Bike to Work Week recap

Committee members saw the usual thin but spirited attendance at celebration stations. AH had a nice time visiting Burnaby LC's station.
