Urban Trails & Bike Paths

 

Cross Town Greenway – New Westminster, B.C.

Vector designed and supervised construction of numerous sections of the Cross Town Greenway route in New Westminster, B.C.  The bike route crosses New Westminster linking the Millennium Line at the New Westminster – Coquitlam border with the Expo Line bicycle pathway at the New Westminster – Burnaby border.  The form of the Greenway varies from dedicated bike lanes, urban trails and reconfiguration of existing roads and laneways with traffic calming to enhance bicycle safety.

BC Parkway – Beresford Street to Rumble Street

Vector provided the design of a shared use paved urban trail including pedestrian bridge and realignment of the surrounding creek.

Chubb Creek Trail – Gilmore Avenue to Madison Avenue

Vector designed and supervised construction of a shared use gravel surface trail system adjacent to Chubb Creek in Burnaby.  The project included the design, construction and supervision of 2 constructed wetlands with day lighting and the completing of two streams, tributary’s to Chubb Creek to re-establish fish habitat.  Post construction monitoring has confirmed that the tributary streams are now inhabited by trout and salmon fry.

Urban Trail – Millennium Line

Vector designed and supervised construction of numerous sections of a 4.0m commuter bike path adjacent to the Millennium Skytrain Line and Lougheed Highway throughout Burnaby.  The sections completed will eventually be linked to create a bicycle commuter route through the Central Valley of Burnaby from Boundary Road to North Road in Coquitlam.
