Bike bridge linking south Vancouver and Richmond now open

A bridge for cyclists and pedestrians moving between south Vancouver and Richmond across the north arm of the Fraser River has opened — to rave reviews.

A new $10-million bike and pedestrian route linking Richmond and Vancouver will opened along with the Canada Line, Metro Vancouver’s new rapid-transit route.

The one-kilometre route hangs beneath the Canada Line’s North Arm Bridge, which connects the Bridgeport and Marine Drive stations across the Fraser River south of Vancouver.

Arno Schortinghuis, president of the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition, said he’s pleased to see the new bridge will keep cyclists away from traffic and out of the rain.
