Surrey Councillors approve new bike infrastructure in City Centre

Tree-lined, separated bike lane

September 3, 2017

Great news out of Surrey this summer - City Councillors have approved plans for separated and protected bike infrastructure in Surrey’s City Centre!

On July 20th, Councilors voted to approve new, high-quality Centre Standard Drawings that reflect the role streets will plan in supporting higher volumes of pedestrian, cycling and transit users.  These plans incorporate new urban standards for greenways such as separated cycling infrastructure, protected bike lanes for users of all ages and abilities on arterial and collector routes, and enhancements for pedestrians.  

These new designs reallocate the space currently used for non-motorized transportation by bringing cyclists into the boulevard to physically separate people on bikes from vehicles and pedestrians. This makes for safer, more viable transportation alternatives in Surrey’s City Centre.

You can review the approved drawings here or get in touch with our local Surrey committee to learn how you can help shape the future of cycling in Surrey/White Rock.
