Project Description

The City currently has approximately 725 km of concrete sidewalk, 36 km of asphalt sidewalk, and 38 km of asphalt Urban Trail. However, approximately 40% of Burnaby roads (275 km) are missing a sidewalk or Urban Trail on one or both sides of the street. In June 2019, Burnaby City Council proposed to expedite new sidewalk construction. Funding was allocated to prioritize building new sidewalks on streets that are close to schools, parks, community centres, and transit facilities. Generally, the first several years of this project will be prioritized on streets that already have curb & gutter. The City has selected sidewalk construction locations based on this prioritization.

On the design scope, RAM is responsible for the design of sixteen (16) infill locations throughout the City of Burnaby for a total of 30+km of sidewalk, curb/gutter, and associated drainage.
