Meeting about Horseshoe Bay with DWV Engineering & Transportation Division staff

  • On 23 July Peter and Paul met by zoom with the director, Jenn Moller, and Andy Quan to discuss streetscape planning for Horseshoe Bay Village.
  • They are not going to redo any of the first phase of the streetscape work on Royal Avenue including the de-activated separated bike lane on the east side between Bay and Bruce Streets.
  • Community engagement and consultation are planned in 2023 prior to proceeding with the next phases of the Horseshoe Bay Streetscape.
  • Regarding the drawing in the Horseshoe Bay Local Area Plan and Design Guidelines (https://www.westvancouverite.ca/plan-hsb) showing a MUP loop around Royal and Nelson Avenues, they said that due to the parking on Nelson Avenue, there would not be enough room for any cycling infrastructure on Nelson Avenue.
  • Peter mentioned that he would like to see protected bike lanes between the new Sewell's development on the west side of the bay and the ferry terminal.
  • He also told them that his favourite bike route exiting Horseshoe Bay Village is riding east along Bay Street behind the ferry terminal and up on the paved shoulder of the traffic lanes for vehicles exiting the Horseshoe Bay ferries where I ride up on the shoulder of Exit 0 to the Spirit Trail.
