Canada Line ped-bike bridge across the Fraser is a beauty

There was an excellent turnout of runners, pedestrians and cyclists from both sides of the Fraser today for Translink’s opening of the Canada Line Fraser River bike crossing.

Cyclists head south from Vancouver over the new Canada Line North Arm crossing for cyclists and pedestrians.

Cyclists head south from Vancouver over the new Canada Line North Arm crossing for cyclists and pedestrians., which hangs below the rails on the north side of the new suspension bridge.

It’s a separated, dedicated bike and pedestrian bridge making a regional connection that will dramatically help pedestrians and cyclists get back and forth across the North Arm of the Fraser.

A happy participant at the launch: Vision councillor Raymond Louie, who worked with Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie in 2003, when both were Translink directors, to ensure inclusion of the bike link proposed by the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition.
