The access roads to UBC function more like rural highways than urban roads, they often fail to safely accommodate cyclists and pedestrians. This is in particular a concern for elementary school children cycling and walking to UHill.
The UBC/UEL Alliance for Cycling and Walking has set up a website at http://bikewalkUBC.org to inform about the access roads to UBC, facilitate a discussion about what people want the roads to look like and encourage people to participate in the Ministry of Transportations public input period on the 10 year transportation plan.
The roads are owned and maintained by several different entities, including the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, UBC, UEL, UNA and others. Bringing about change that enables safe walking and cycling will take time, but hopefully we can get the discussion started.
