A new multi-use overpass for pedestrians and cyclists will be built over Stewardson Way in New Westminster to provide a safe connection over the busy arterial route.

Construction will begin soon on the new overpass, which will be located east of the Queensborough Bridge where there is no pedestrian sidewalk.

With the addition, pedestrians and cyclists will be able to safely cross 6th Avenue and Stewardson Way, and it provides easier access to Grimston Park and the SkyTrain station and bus loop at 22nd Street.

The $5.1-million project is being funded by the federal government, provincial government, and TransLink. It will be ready for use in Summer 2019.

“Building better, safer connections in communities benefits everyone, and this project is a great example of how the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund funds are being used to improve walking, cycling and transit connectivity,” said Kevin Desmond, CEO of TransLink, in a statement.

“Investments in this project and upgrades to the 22nd Street Exchange help ensure our rapidly growing region will grow in a way that is sustainable, and is a place where residents have great choices for how they navigate their cities.”
