Median to cross Victoria Dr. at 10th Ave

The 10th Ave bike route (eastbound) ends at Victoria Dr. There you turn onto Victoria, or continue east along CVG. It's hard to cross Victoria, or turn (left) north onto Victoria, as traffic has very few gaps. Usually one has to wait for vehicles to give up their priority and stop to let bikes cross. A median would sure help a lot, as there are often gaps in one direction of traffic.

Hi Richard

Agreed, this intersection is a problem. It is the responsibility of the City of Vancouver. Sending a letter to Mayor and Council a good idea, mayorandcouncil@vancouver.ca

Also a good idea to bring it up with the HUB Vancouver committee, vancouver@bikehub.ca

I'm move it to http://www.bccc.bc.ca/local_priorities as this list is focused mainly on provincial issues.

Thanks

Richard
