The City is building a new network of all ages and abilities cycling infrastructure.
The goal is to improve road safety for people on bikes and connect the downtown core with schools, parks, community centres and other destinations.
Planning is now underway for the next phase of capital projects in the All Ages and Abilities cycling network.
Starting August 15, you are invited to provide preliminary feedback on route selection in the Jubilee neighbourhood. This early phase of engagement intends to collect some preliminary input and insights to inform full-length design concepts which will be shared with the public later this fall during a second phase of engagement on this project.
Visit the cycling network project page on the City's engagement platform to access the virtulal introductory video and online survey. Additional information is available in this Jubilee Additional Resources document.
Stay tuned to engage.vctoria.ca for more updates on opportunities for public consultation.
Construction on Vancouver, Graham-Jackson and Harbour Road
Construction is now underway on the Vancouver Street, Graham-Jackson, and Harbour Road corridors. These projects represent a significant step in the growth of the City’s AAA cycling network. Once complete, these corridors will add ~4.8kms to the network, more than doubling its current size, extending to city limits and providing connections from the downtown core network to several neighbourhoods and to neighbouring municipalities. Work on all corridors is expected to be complete in Spring 2021.
For an overview of the road safety improvements and to learn what kind of changes are coming in different locations along the corridor, check out the Construction Overview Map [PDF].

Approved designs on Kings-Haultain, Kimta/E&N, Government Street North, and Richardson Street.
On July 9, 2020 Council approved the designs for the next phase of the AAA cycling network. Road safety improvements will be coming to four more corridors, adding ~8kms to the growing network and getting closer to completion of the City's priority AAA netowrk.

Dallas Road - Temporary designation as a multi-use trail
On July 9, 2020 Council also approved a recommendation to designate the Dallas Road cycling facility as a temporary multi-use trail for a period of 18 months. The recommendation came from staff in response to an increased demand for outdoor space in light of COVID-19 and balances City priorities around accessible spaces and ecological restoration in the park.
