  • A concrete sidewalk on the east side of the road
  • On-street parking pockets

Safety Improvements

Gatensbury Street is an important collector road and a well-used walking and cycling route for both the City of Coquitlam and City of Port Moody. Pedestrian and cyclist safety is improved with:

  • A new sidewalk
  •  A multi-use pathway
  • Treed boulevards to separate pedestrians from vehicles
  •  Curb extensions to reduce crossing distances
  • New crosswalk signs and markings

The street has new curbs and curb extensions that narrow the street from the existing conditions.


This project was funded from a number of sources:

  • City’s annual Frontage Works Program,
  • City’s annual Bicycle Route Upgrade Program, and
  • TransLink Grant (for bicycle route upgrades).


Improvements on Gatensbury Street began the week of June 13, 2022 and have now completed.
