Engaging 40 Avenue
40th Avenue, between 106 Street and 120 Street, is a collector road serving the neighbourhoods of Rideau Park, Duggan, Greenfield, Aspen Gardens and Royal Gardens. The route provides access to schools, parks, local businesses, and the arterial road network.
The area also includes a designed bike route that aims to connect communities and cyclists to local destinations and to the wider bike network. Through the past year’s public engagement we’ve heard a desire for higher quality cycling facilities through the communities. Next steps will identify how and where bike routes should be located, and how they can be designed to reflect local needs.
Residents are invited to a community meeting to discuss new bike route location options. City staff will present high quality cycling facility options for 40 Avenue and 43 Avenue.
Bike Lane Removals
On-street bike routes were installed on 40 Avenue in 2013 but faced opposition from the community who felt they were not sufficiently consulted in the planning process. Responding to residents’ concerns, in July 2015 on 40 Avenue from 119 Street to 106 Street; and on 106 Street from Whitemud Drive to 34 Avenue.
Public Engagement History
Thank you to the over 300 people that completed the June 2015 bike lane survey, and to the others who attended the Community Barbeque, and those who were able to talk to our engagement team during morning school drop offs and other community events.
