Is there simply too much junk along the Central Valley Greenway? We’ve documented in photos the stretch along the route from Victoria Drive to Boundary Road, and compare with the Burnaby side of the route.
Can Vancouver do better than this? One only needs to cross Boundary Road and see the Burnaby side of the bikeway. It’s much cleaner. Even the “Welcome to Vancouver” sign on Boundary Road has also fallen into disrepair. Is there a trend in Vancouver with more and more junk on the streets, on bikeways and everywhere in general? Some people get that impression. Will the City literally start a clean up? What strategies are needed to prevent dumping in the first place? And how can the City act more quickly once something is dumped? Is the City monitoring regularly and frequently enough? Or does it depend on complaints from citizens? What is the role of the public in making this a nicer place?
