Vancouver’s council this week approved the Comox Helmcken Greenway. This is a weclome project that will make cycling and walking more safe and comfortable in an area where motor vehicle use is already on the decline. It also better connects the east and west sides of the downtown pennisula for residents, with a street design that can accomodate more users.
Making our cities safe, easy and pleasant to get around by bike, on foot, and on public transit is one of the key tasks for cities over the next several decades. This project is a solid footstep forward for Vancouver.
