Point Grey Road – Cornwall Avenue
The Point Grey Road – Cornwall Avenue Corridor Active Transportation Project proposes creating a safe, convenient and comfortable connection for pedestrians and cyclists between Burrard Bridge and Jericho Beach.
- Encourage people of all ages and abilities to get around their city through active transportation (any mode of human-powered transportation, including jogging/running, inline skating, skateboarding, wheelchairs, strollers, etc.) in a comfortable, convenient, and enjoyable way.
- Address existing safety issues along Point Grey Road and Cornwall Avenue by reducing the volume and speed of vehicle traffic.
- Create a walking and cycling route that is safe, convenient, and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities.
- Make the intersection of Burrard Street and Cornwall Avenue safer and more direct for pedestrians and cyclists.
