The city has finally separated bike and pedestrian traffic in front of Edgewater Casino and Plaza of Nations. In summer especially, this undulating section led to conflicts along the shared pathway. I assume the original plan was to redesign this stretch of the seawall at the same time as redevelopment at Plaza of Nations. But since the 750 Pacific project seems dead for the time being, the City probably decided to go ahead with spot improvements anyway. Now the pathways more closely resemble the section further west, where pedestrians and bicycles are fully separated by a median.
Good to see that the city continues to make improvements across our bike network. More trips by cycling and fewer by driving are largely to thank for Vancouver meeting 50% non-automobile mode share in 2014, ahead of 2020 targets. Trips on Burrard Bridge were up about a third in Sep-Nov 2014 over the previous year, probably thanks to the Seaside Greenway improvements in Kitsilano. Total vehicle kilometers have fallen an estimated 16.5% since 2007. We probably would have been even further ahead of the Transportation 2040 goals had senior government enabled needed investments in transit along our major corridors and across the region.
