We’re Making Some Changes to Esplanade

We’re redesigning Esplanade to create a safer, more comfortable experience for pedestrians and cyclists, while maintaining the existing road capacity for transit, trucks and passenger vehicles.

We’re taking a Complete Street approach to ensure that we consider people of all ages and abilities, support all modes of transportation, maintain access to local businesses and create a new experience that feels vibrant and welcoming.

To achieve this, we will:

  • Increase road safety by introducing protected cycling lanes.
  • Retain the existing travel lanes to ensure transit is fast and reliable, while also maintaining the efficient movement of vehicles through the corridor.
  • Make it easier to access businesses by increasing curbside availability for passenger pick-up and drop-off, as well as deliveries.
  • Create a comfortable and vibrant experience by planting more trees and shrubs, and creating places for people to sit and gather.

Overview
As we look to make improvements to Esplanade, it’s important to remember Esplanade is many things to many people.

Esplanade is:
  • A critical east-west route through the City that supports the movement of goods and people.
  • The only truck route through the City, other than Highway 1, that provides efficient access to Lower Lonsdale businesses and port industries.
  • A challenging urban driving experience with frequent stops and parking activity, where vehicles travel next to cyclists and pedestrians.


Esplanade is:
  • An efficient and intuitive route that provides the best connection to transit, businesses, and key destinations in Lower Lonsdale.
  • A busy urban environment that often feels uncomfortable due to the noise, speed and lack of separation from passing vehicles.


Esplanade is:
  • Home to a variety of businesses and part of the overall customer experience.
  • A difficult area to find available curb space to drop someone off, receive a delivery, or park.
