BC Parkway to receive major upgrades in New Westminster

TransLink and the City of New Westminster are announcing major upgrades to a section of the BC Parkway. The 737-metre section of Stewardson Way, between River Drive and 14th Street, will receive significant improvements for all modes of active transportation.

The Stewardson Way upgrades will include:

  • Closing a gap in the BC Parkway between 5th Avenue and 14th Street.
  • Widening the existing path to feature separate lanes for cyclists and pedestrians.
  • Repaving intersections along the route.
  • Adding pathway lighting, new retaining walls, and new traffic signals at 5th Avenue.

The BC Parkway Stewardson Way Upgrades project was made possible with the collaboration of Southern Railway of British Columbia by making a key section of land available for active transportation, and from the City of New Westminster, who identified Stewardson Way as an area in need of upgrades and contributed funding for the construction.

Construction will begin this week and is expected to be completed later this year.
