Province Schedules Public Consultation for Stanley Park Causeway

Last February I wrote about how The Ministry of Transportation began surveying the Stanley Park Causeway with plans to reveal a design last spring. Instead, the Ministry hopes to gain more insight from the public during a consultation session.

The Stanley Park Causeway is 2.2-kilometres of Highway 99 that connects Vancouver and the North Shore. The redesign project was introduced following the death of a 61-year old woman.  She was commuting by bike when she veered onto the roadway to avoid a pedestrian and collided with a bus.

Building separate lanes for cyclists and pedestrians, along with barriers between the road and path are some of the proposed changes to the causeway.

Erin O’Melinn, executive director of HUB, told the Vancouver Sun the cycling education and advocacy group “would have liked things to happen quicker, but I know that a lot of stakeholders are involved here.” She hopes to have at least part of the causeway completed by May 2015’s Bike to Work Week.

The consultation session will be held on Tuesday, December 2 at 2:30pm at the
Coal Harbour Community Centre.
