Project Description:

The City of Courtenay is developing the “Connecting Courtenay” Transportation Master Plan which will include long-term plans for all modes of transportation over the next 20 years, as well as investments within the next five to 10 years. The plan is in its final stages of development, with anticipated completion in mid‐2019.

The Connecting Courtenay Cycling Network Plan provides recommended medium and long‐term cycling networks for the City, details regarding cycling support facilities and programs, implementation considerations, and approximate medium and long‐term costs associated with projects identified in the plan.

Previous Consultation


A transportation network includes all the ways that people, goods, and services move.  Growing communities with greater diversity demand more transportation choice and people of all ages and abilities need to be able to reach important destinations, by whichever mode they choose.  How people travel around their community, where they travel to and how long it takes, all contribute to how communities plan transportation infrastructure like roads, bike lanes, and sidewalks.

Based on public input, best practices, and technical assessment, Connecting Courtenay will identify existing issues, model future impacts, identify long-term improvements and set priorities for five and 10 years investments.
