Kilometres of Cycling-Specific Infrastructure

“Increase the amount of cycling-specific infrastructure by 10%” measures success in improving the ease with which cyclists move around the city.  Cycling-specific infrastructure includes the following:

  • Cycle track:  A raised cycle track that is the same level as the adjacent sidewalk
  • Bike boulevard:  A street that gives priority to cyclists (Example: 23rd Street from Idylwyld Drive to Vancouver Avenue)
  • Paved off-road multi-use trail:  Multi-use pathway (Example: Meewasin Valley Authority Trail or 33rd Street Multi-Use Pathway)
  • Walkway or park path:  Paths in parks
  • Gravel or crushed dust off-road multi-use trail:  (Example: Gravel path connecting Glenwood Avenue to Cardinal Place near Airport Business Area)
  • On-road bike lane:  Painted bike lane (Example: 4th Avenue)

How are we doing?   

Nine km of new bike lanes and paths were added in 2014 (7 km) and 2015 (2 km).  Some cycling infrastructure was also upgraded in 2015.  For instance, the 23rd Street Protected Bike Lane opened in July 2015 and will be expanded in 2016 as part of a pilot project.
