The HUB Cycling Burnaby Committee recently worked with the City of Burnaby engineering department to remove a hazard for people cycling. A curb lip was causing falls and injuries. Due to a gap in the network, many people cycling used it an informal bike connection. Thanks to the Burnaby Committees advocacy efforts, the engineering department ground down the lip, removing the hazard. Learn more.
The Gilmore Overpass is a dangerous part of the Sea to River Bikeway. Thanks to the work of the committee, and people like you that wrote in, Council has recently approved a safe and comfortable place to cycle with a 3.5 m wide multi-use path on Gilmore Diversion, Still Creek Ave to Canada Way.
