BACKGROUND

What are we doing?

We're developing dedicated pathway and bikeway routes in Falconridge, Castleridge, Taradale, Saddle Ridge and Martindale, 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 numbers of students and safety incidents are the two main reasons we are investing in pathways and bikeways in these neighbourhoods. Calgary data shows there are more students living near their school than in other parts of Calgary, and that this area experienced the highest numbers of injury collisions between 2017 and 2021. Designing safer streets for students will mean safer streets for everyone.


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 online engagement was open from May 10- July 2, 2024. We are currently working on our What We Heard Report which will be out this summer.

Consistency + connecting existing multiuse paths. future paths and bikeways is good. Shallower turning radius helps visibility in crosswalks

Making sure the paths are safe to walk/bike also in the winter. Snow/ice removal will make it easier to bike all year round.

Use recycled plastic bottles/caps with a high visibility colour which are 3x more durable than asphalt to resurface pathways along roadways

The path along 96th Ave NE btwn 60th St & 68th Ave is missing. This is very dangerous for cyclists as we have to ride on a very busy route.
