Took a ride along the Central Valley Greenway from False Creek to Gilmore Station in Burnaby this afternoon. Was pleased to see that 99% of the paving is done already all the way to Boundary Road. Still have to put up fences, signs, landscaping but it is usable now. A traffic light where 1st Ave crosses Main St and also Quebec street would be helpful, hopefully those will be ready by the spring.
new paving just west of Renfrew Station
at Boundary Road
Looking west at Boundary Road towards Vancouver
Pleasant ambiance on the section in Burnaby between Boundary and Gilmore. (poor pavement, razor wire, graffiti vandalism, fences on both sides, wouldn't want to be in this area late at night. The columns are really poor for visibility)
Overall it seems like it will be a good cycling route, but some of the areas don't seem very friendly.
