Victoria’s next set of bike lanes slated to run along Beacon Hill Park

The Vancouver Street Bike Lanes are up for public discussion this week

The City of Victoria is looking for public input on their next phase of the bike lane network.

An online survey is trying to gauge people’s opinions on the Vancouver Street bike lanes, after the north-south corridor was moved from Cook Street. The Vancouver lanes would run from Bay Street to Park Boulevard, including a section that would run along Beacon Hill Park.

This would close the loop between the current Pandora Avenue and Fort Street bike lanes, and the upcoming Wharf and Humboldt Street bike lanes.

The Vancouver Street lanes would be divided into three segments: from Bay Street to Pandora Avenue, from Pandora Avenue to Fort Street, and from Fort Street to Park Boulevard.

Discussions will continue until the end of the year and then further planning and feedback will begin in 2019.
