BACKGROUND

What are we doing?

We're developing dedicated pathway and bikeway routes in Pineridge, Temple, Rundle and Whitehorn, aligning with Calgary's established Pathway and Bikeway Network. These routes will focus on routes that serve students, recreation, shopping, and work destinations. When built, these routes will provide safe, healthy, and affordable travel choices for people of all ages and all abilities.


Why are we doing it?

High traffic safety incidents and connecting nearby amenities are the two main reasons we are investing in pathways and bikeways in these neighbourhoods. Calgary data shows that this area experienced higher numbers of injury collisions between 2017 and 2021. Designing safer streets and addressing missing connections will allow a safe and comfortable choice for everyone when exploring their neighbourhood.


What will we do with your feedback?

In this Phase 1: Discover - your input will provide valuable local perspectives, opinions, and concerns, helping the project team understand the local context and needs of the area. Your input from this phase will be considered alongside factors such as cost, environmental impact, technical limitations, and long-range plans to inform design options that will be presented in Phase 2: Explore.

At the conclusion of each engagement phase, a What We Heard report summarizing feedback will be produced and made available on this page.

Submit Your Feedback Below

Phase 1 engagement was open from May 23 - July 15, 2024. We are currently working on the What We Heard Report which will be out this summer.

Think about the experiences of students, people with mobility challenges, parents with strollers / young children, and seniors travelling in the community. If we consider improvements for the most vulnerable it will make the pathways and bikeways safer for all!

The NE bike pathways need to be connected to the rest of the city including city centre, the airport, and other parts of the city.

Bicycles are considered vehicles under highway traffic act, as such would like dedicated bike lanes all over Whitehorn

Address connectivity gaps in major pathway systems - 50th Ave SE is incredibly dangerous as it forces you onto heavy industrial street

Plan the complete system like roads - all connections must safely lead to the skeletal pathways: Greenway, TC Trail, River paths.

Please add more waste bins and benches where possible on the pathway system. Example between 28 ave north to temple drive, there are none.

The sidewalk on the south side of 32 ave is disjointed. Consider pathway along the boulevard from 56 -60 st and 64-68 street.

At the corner of 28th and 60th en route to Clarence Sansolm school, cars routinely drive fast down both roads. It needs to be a 4 way stop.
