Guildford Greenway and Road Safety Improvements

This project extends along Guildford Way from the Port Moody border to Coquitlam River Park. It will provide improved micromobility/cycling facilities by physically separating users from vehicles and pedestrians. 

The improvements will make it safer and more convenient for people walking, cycling and scootering to access amenities and destinations such as Eagle Ridge Pool and Park, City Centre Aquatic Complex, City Hall, Lafarge-Lake Douglas SkyTrain Station, Town Centre Park, Evergreen Cultural Centre and Coquitlam River.

Drop-in Info Session 

The City held a drop-in information session on May 14, 2024 to share information about Phase 2 of Guildford Greenway and Road Safety Improvements project.

You can view the display boards from that session here.  The information on the display panels include:

  • Details about why this improvement project is important
  • Improvement details
  • Construction impacts
  • Map of entire project (all three phases)
  • Images and renderings to show before and after road sections and intersections

The project will be completed in three phases: 

  • Phase 1 - Completed in 2023: The first phase of the project was from the Port Moody border to Johnson StreetSee Media Release about this phase. 
  • Phase 2 - Summer 2024: Construction will take place from Johnson Street to Pinetree Way to: 
    • Provide raised separated micromobility/bike lanes and wider sidewalks on both sides of Guildford Way 
    • Convert existing pedestrian signals at both Pacific Street and Town Centre Boulevard intersections to full traffic signals
    • Improve lighting and bus stops
    • Improve safety at the Guildford Way/Pinetree Way intersection with protected left-turns and shorter pedestrian crossings
  • Phase 3 - Future: This phase will continue the separated micromobility lanes eastward to Coquitlam River Park and provide connections to Port Coquitlam. 


Grant Funding -  B.C. Active Transportation Infrastructure Grants Program, and $2.5 million from TransLink’s Municipal Cost Share Programs, approximately 60 per cent of the project will be funded by partners.

Micromobility Increases Transportation Options and Accessibility

Micromobility is more than just bikes – it refers to a range of low- to medium-speed transportation devices that are people or electric powered including bikes, e-scooters and skateboards. 

Micromobility is an emerging and important part of transportation options either for standalone trips, or at the beginning or end of transit trips. This is especially true in transit-oriented development areas such as City Centre and Burquitlam-Lougheed.

E-scooters are allowed for use in Coquitlam as part of a provincial pilot project, and  e-bikes have the potential to help navigate Coquitlam’s challenging terrain, and provide another sustainable transportation option for residents and visitors. 

Continued micromobility integration will be addressed as part of the City’s E-Mobility Strategy, currently in development, along with the update to the Strategic Transportation Plan

Additionally, continued growth in environmentally friendly modes of travel support the City’s goals around sustainability as outlined in theEnvironmental Sustainability Plan, and economic goals identified in theEconomic Development Strategy ).
