Active transportation planning

Looking at improvements on how you and your family travel in Esquimalt

Lampson & Tillicum corridor active transportation improvements

The township has proposed design improvements for both Lampson and Tillicum streets. Using feedback based on our Active Transportation Network Plan public engagement as well as previous surveys, these draft designs aim to enhance road safety for cyclists and pedestrians.

Before moving forward to finalize designs, the township wants to showcase the plan’s features then hear feedback from residents and businesses on these proposed changes.

Active transportation network plan

The township launched a multi-phase engagement campaign to hear how residents want to see multi-modal transportation in Esquimalt take shape.

The plan:

  • identifies gaps in the pedestrian and cycling network;
  • recommends improvements to the quality and experience for people walking, biking and rolling;
  • provides a roadmap for high priority improvements over the next 5–10 years;  
  • aims to increase the share of trips completed by active transportation and to more broadly reach the greenhouse gas (GHG) targets set out in the Official Community Plan.  

Council approved the plan and directed staff to bring forward initiatives for Council consideration that include budget and capacity implications during the 2022 budget planning process.

This made-in-Esquimalt plan is driven by best practices and the latest design guides to reflect the needs, interests & priorities of the community.
