Re. "King Albert Greenway work to begin this summer" (tricitynews.com).
The following is an excerpt from a city of Coquitlam report dated April 23, 2019 on a proposed pedestrian and bicycle bridge across Como Creek on King Albert Avenue:
"Financial Implication: The updated project cost estimate (class "C") is approximately $3 million including $1 million for a new pedestrian/bike bridge over Como Creek. Pedestrian scale lighting is now included along the entire greenway."
In other words, the city is spending $1 million for approximately 37 metres ($27,000 per metre) of pedestrian and bike path over Como Creek.
I would like to point out that pedestrians and cyclists can access east and west via Austin and Winslow avenues, approximately 850 feet south or north respectively.
