There’s a plan to build a trail from the intersection of North Road and South Road to Tin Can Alley, and you’re invited to an open house about it.
The RDN’s Gabriola Village Trail page explains about the project:
North Road is one of the main thoroughfares on Gabriola Island, linking the ferry terminal directly with the Village Core. Due to this direct link to the stores, businesses and other community destinations, it is a busy road and currently offers little separation for cyclists or pedestrians passing through. The community has explored and expressed interest for a connecting trail within this area.
The RDN has recently retained the services of Topographics, a local Landscape Architecture firm on Gabriola Island to undertake the design work for a new trail along North Road, between the junction of South Rd and North Rd and Tin Can Alley. It is anticipated that the trail will be located within the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI) road right-of-way along the 1.4km stretch.
(Note that I am not responsible for the odd capitalization of landscape architecture above.)
The open house will be at the Agi Hall on Saturday, March 29th, from 12 to 3pm.
Here is the Huxley_Village Trail Open House poster about the event, in .pdf format.
