Update April 30, 2024: Thank you to everyone who participated in the fall 2023 engagement on roadway improvements along East 29th Street. Many of you shared your experience along East 29th Street and we received input on several common themes including speeding, shortcutting and visibility. Read the Phase 2 Engagement Summary Report to learn more about the engagement activities and a summary of what we heard. Community input is currently being reviewed and will be considered as we develop the design for road improvements that will be shared in the coming months.


Update December 15, 2023: Thank you for your interest in the East 29th Street Safety Improvements project. Your input is important and will help us make decisions about future roadway improvements. The engagement period has closed and we’re reviewing all the input received. We look forward to sharing a summary of community feedback in the coming months.


The City of North Vancouver is working with the District of North Vancouver on the second and final phase of roadway improvements along East 29th Street. Phase 2 improvements will address the poor pavement conditions between Lonsdale Avenue and Regent Avenue and provide us with an opportunity to provide a safer, more comfortable experience for all road users. Work will focus on paving, roadway markings, intersection safety, sightline improvements and adjustments to transit stop locations. Bike lanes are not planned as part of this work as an alternate bike route is located along Tempe Crescent and 27th Street.


As a significant amount of time has passed since the first phase of engagement, we are reconnecting with residents to review areas along the corridor and share changes we are investigating. We’d also like to learn more about how residents are experiencing the street to help us identify any gaps.


View the Corridor – Lonsdale Avenue to Regent Avenue

We’ve identified a number of areas along the corridor where we can improve the safety and comfort of road users. These areas were identified during the first phase of engagement, through ongoing communication with residents, observations made by City staff and recent data collection. The maps below provide information about changes we are investigating.

CORRIDOR WIDE IMPROVEMENTS:

Vehicle speeds along East 29th have been a key issue identified for resolution. The following measures are proposed to encourage compliance with the speed limit:
  • Reduced travel lane widths that are appropriately sized for the posted speed limit of 50km/h.
  • Digital speed readers to be periodically installed along the corridor to remind drivers of the speed limit.
  • Continued partnership with RCMP on enforcement.

Residents with driveways facing East 29th identified visibility challenges when exiting driveways.

  • Painted buffer zones westbound from St Andrews to Somerset and eastbound from St Marys to Regent will improve sightlines by allowing drivers to pull out further to see oncoming traffic.

  • Share Hello, I just missed the door knockers regarding the safety improvements on East 29th. I am a resident on Somerset Street. I frequently turn left on both east and west outputs of Somerset onto 29th on a daily basis. I have never had an issue or a near miss situation. I would be interested in seeing the crash statistics on Somerset/ 29th on both ends. I, myself, have never seen a crash on either of the sides of Somerset. However, I do often hear them on 29th/ Regent at the pedestrian crosswalk. This is a far more difficult intersection to turn left at, coming from Regent, given the crest of the hill and speeds people take up 29th. What I do find difficult are the pedestrians who cross 29th to Somerset in a non-marked cross walk, wearing all black coming from the bus stop on the east side of 29th at the top. We have no where near enough street lamps in the area. I think that the mess of 29th has been a concern for residents since the bike lane debate. Implementing left turn restrictions will increase the level of safety, negatively, as residents will ignore these rules, much like the implementation of no left turns on Keith/ Shavington. It is actually making the streets more unsafe. I am NOT in favour of left turn restrictions. It's fine the way it is now. on Facebook Share Hello, I just missed the door knockers regarding the safety improvements on East 29th. I am a resident on Somerset Street.

    Thank you for your comment. Crash data is just one tool used to help determine if action is required. The City uses nationally recognized standards that guide the design decisions that are made. In this case, a sight analysis was completed on E 29th and the results indicate a lack of visibility which can make left turns out of Somerset and Brand challenging. Your comments regarding compliance with changes to the street are an important consideration for staff. In addition to the technical analysis, we will be considering people’s behaviour in the design for the intersection. Thank you for sharing your perspective.

    BK asked 6 months ago

    Thank you for your comment. The City recognizes that the number of left turns onto St. Georges from E 29th is high. The consideration for the left turn bay at St. Georges is to make this turn safer for all users at the intersection. To discourage shortcutting through St. Georges, we are adding left turn bays on E 29th at Lonsdale with considerations for signal improvements to increase the efficiency and capacity of the intersection. These improvements can make Lonsdale a more appealing option and reduce the attraction to cut through local streets.

    Iain asked 6 months ago

    Thank for your comment. Please note that the scope of work for this phase of the project does not include the addition of any bike lanes. We know that speeds are high on E 29th and have collected speed data to confirm this. As such, a safety improvement the City and District are considering is to slightly narrow travel lanes to the appropriate width for an arterial road, which in this case is 3.3m travel lanes through the addition of painted fog lines. This lane width is still wide for emergency vehicles, as well as buses and trucks to navigate through.

    Thank you for your question. Upper Regent Avenue has been identified as a sidewalk priority in in the District of North Vancouver’s Pedestrian Master Plan (Pedestrian Master Plan | District of North Vancouver (dnv.org) which helps to improve walking conditions for pedestrians. However, Regent Avenue is within the fifth priority grouping, making it a lower priority to address within the 10-year plan. The District of North Vancouver believes safe routes to school are important. Your input is appreciated and will be taken into consideration.

    Lindy Bremner asked 6 months ago

    Hi Lindy, thanks for the follow-up question. The City can consider the installation of speed humps on local roads if supported by local residents through a petition process. Through this process, the City would consider the installation of speed humps if supported by a minimum of two-thirds of local residents whose properties abut the street. If you would like to lead a petition for new speed humps, we can prepare a package for you which can be used to collect signatures. Please note that a successful petition does not guarantee that speed humps will be installed. Many factors have to be considered during the design phase, which may rule out speed humps, such as the grade of the street, potential conflicting utilities and driveways, inter-municipal considerations, and input from emergency services.

    Thanks for your inquiry and general feedback. Local Traffic Only signs are used when construction closes a road to indicate drivers can continue to access their residences. These signs are not enforceable and therefore not an effective measure when the roadway is not closed.

    Thank you for your question. The City is aware of this sidewalk gap and acknowledges the need for a sidewalk at this location. We are currently working through sidewalk gaps around the City on a priority basis. The current priority is to fill gaps directly adjacent to or leading to schools. The timing of construction at this location is to be determined. In the meantime, we are looking at options to improve the function of the Lonsdale and 29th St intersection to make it more efficient for drivers to use the arterial roads and reduce the attraction to cut through local streets. The ongoing Upper Levels Greenway project is looking at broader vehicle travel patterns in the neighbourhoods including options to address short-cutting on local streets.
