To document some of the issues with snow removal on bike routes, sidewalks and streets, we’ve included a number of photos in our slideshow. While there might be a narrative that bike routes are cleaned before sidewalks and pedestrian routes, a number of photos illustrate problems with many bike routes not being cleared properly of snow (photos on Adanac, W7th Avenue, 1st Avenue, Lakewood, Woodland, BC Parkway in Trout Lake). There are plenty of issues with snow and ice removal on side streets and arterial roads. This isn’t the first winter with snow in Vancouver and the same problems seem to crop up every year. Garbage and recycling pickups are missed, commutes to work are impacted and it becomes difficult to get around. Other large cities in Canada don’t come to a standstill after a snowfall. Could Vancouver make more progress coping with a little bit of snow?
