The Pedestrian Core project is part of the
Realm Plan, a 15 year improvement plan to update a network
of outdoor public spaces.
The pedestrian experience will be
significantly improved by replacing existing road beds with
high-quality pedestrian promenades that are flush with adjacent
lawn areas. The walkways will form the framework for a classic
campus landscape of broad lawns and historic shade trees.
Main Mall/University Boulevard Pedestrian Zone will be a
pedestrian and cyclist only zone. Vehicle access will be
restricted to emergency vehicles only for the protection of
pedestrians and cyclists and UBC property.
surrounding routes, designated a Service Zone, will be
restricted to emergency, essential service, electric service
vehicles and disability access.
