Northwest Hydro Corridor Greenway

The Northwest Hydro Corridor Greenway would build separated bicycle and pedestrians pathways along a hydro right of way that runs parallel to McPhillips Street from just north of the McPhilips Street Casino, passing by Seven Oaks Hospital before  continuing beyond the Perimeter Highway. From McPhillips Street Station, the Greenway would include a grade separated crossing of the CPR Yards and CPR La Rivierre rail lines leading to a trail through Stanley Knowles Park to tie in with the Alexander Bikeway via Winks.

The McPhillips Greenway has potential similar to that of the Bishop Grandin Greenway

A Northwest version of the Bishop Grandin Greenway?

Serving an area that has very few roadways with cycling specific infrastructure, the Northwest Hydro Corridor Greenway is envisioned as a major spine in the City’s planned cycling network. Much like the Bishop Grandin Greenway in the south end of the city, the Northwest Hydro Corridor Greenway has the potential to offer cyclists a route substantially removed from traffic.
