A long-term vision for Wesbrook Mall was developed in partnership with the University Endowment Lands, TransLink, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and with input from the campus community in 2015 as part of the update to the design guidelines for the University Boulevard area.

Now, the first phase of the project is underway.

  • The long-term design vision for Wesbrook Mall that prioritizes a range of improvements for pedestrians, cyclists and buses
  • The first phase of construction underway, which will introduce new intersections for pedestrians, new bike lanes for cyclists, and new dedicated bus lanes
  • A new 41st Avenue B-Line bus service to UBC that is launching in January 2020
  • The timeline for the first phase of construction and next steps
