Arbutus Corridor

ArbutusCooridor

Arbutus Corridor | Place | An 11km CPR railway line running from False Creek to the Fraser River. Abandoned in January, 2000, and thereafter marred by a jurisdiction dispute between the City of Vancouver and CPR, the city won the legal right to dictate land use and zoning in a 2006 Supreme Court decision. The plan now is to convert it to a greenway.

Usage | “Unsurprisingly, the NIMBY’s in Kerrisdale were against using the Arbutus Corridor as a Skytrain line to YVR”.

  1. But it might well be resuscitated in future as an LRT to Marpole and New West once we get the cost estimates for increasing the size of Canada Line stations to meet increasing demand. It would then make a much better candidate for the centre lanes of the Granville Bridge than a pedestrian pathway.
