Golden, British Columbia – A new walking and cycling pathway is being constructed in the Golden area of British Columbia, running parallel to the Trans-Canada Highway for just over one kilometre.

The two-metre-wide paved pathway will connect to Station Avenue at the Highway 95 intersection at the west end, and with the Visitor Information Centre on Golden Donald Upper Road at the east end.

Beyond the separate path, cyclists will be accommodated on wider highway shoulders constructed as part of the upgrades in the Kicking Horse Canyon Project.

The path will provide a safe, alternative route for pedestrians and cyclists on Golden Hill, and will include a scenic lookout and rest spot. Construction is now underway and is scheduled to be completed by October 2011.
