Vancouver park board votes to remove temporary bike lane in Stanley Park
Park board commissioners voted Monday to get rid of most of the temporary bike lanes in Stanley Park, except in areas where there is a public safety concern such as Brockton Point and Lumberman’s Arch.
They also asked staff to report back on a dedicated bike lane by November for summer 2024. Commissioners voted six to one in favour of “option C,” which removes the majority of the temporary bike lane by May 2023, according to the park board.
“Stanley Park is a crown jewel of our city,” said park board chair Scott Jensen, in a statement. “We’re proud to be making good on our campaign promise to make it more accessible for all residents and visitors.”
“This summer, visitors can look forward to improved traffic flows on Stanley Park Drive and increased access to the parking lots at Lumberman’s Arch, The Teahouse, and Second Beach.” saidJensen.
Park board staff will gather data this summer to create options for the new infrastructure and report back to the board no later than November 2023, Jensen said.
