Decision on proposed bike lane through Kits beach park postponed

A proposed bike lane through Vancouver’s Kitsilano Beach Park isn’t going to happen without a fight — and a lot more work by park-board staff.

On Monday, opponents of the planned cycling path got a reprieve after the park board voted to refer the report back to staff due to a lack of clarity around costs and impact on green space and street parking.

“It’s the right decision,” said Fiona Brodie of Wake Up Vancouver, which held a rally outside the park-board office before the meeting. “The plan is un-costed and brought to the park board that’s … being asked to prioritize a bike lane that’s contentious without a lot of detail.”

Proponents of the bike pathway say the separated lane will improve safety and reduce conflict between cyclists, pedestrians and motorists.
