2018 BC Parkway Upgrades

As part of our ongoing investment in the BC Parkway, the retaining wall near Nanaimo Station will be replaced this summer between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. approximately. To ensure the safety of all BC Parkway users, a detour will be in place while construction crews are working. Cyclists should add approximately five minutes to their commute.

Improving and maintaining infrastructure on the BC Parkway is an important way for TransLink to reach our long-term cycling goals for the region. We thank everyone for their patience while this work is done.

The BC Parkway is a 26-kilometre, multi-use path that roughly parallels the Expo SkyTrain Line, connecting Surrey City Centre, New Westminster, South Burnaby and Vancouver.

With the development of transit oriented neighbourhoods around SkyTrain stations, the BC Parkway will become an increasingly important facility for walking and wheeling (pedestrians, commuter and recreational cyclists, wheelchair users, in-line skating etc.).

TransLink has a conceptual design report for improvements to the BC Parkway. This provides guidance for the BC Parkway upgrade process and will be used to prioritize improvements.
