The RDN has recently retained the services of Topographics, a local Landscape Architecture firm on Gabriola Island to undertake the design work for a new trail along North Road, between the junction of South Rd and North Rd and Tin Can Alley. It is anticipated that the trail will be located within the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI) road right-of-way along the 1.4km stretch.
Funding for trail design is through the federal Community Works Funds. Projects within the region's Electoral Areas that will improve public infrastructure and reduce greenhouse gas emissions are eligible to receive these funds. The Gabriola Village Trail will serve as a safe and enjoyable non-motorized corridor, linking Gabriola's Village with nearby parks, the Gabriola Commons, the Elementary School, and other community destinations.

The preliminary Concept Plan (20MB) is also available. The Concept Plan will be revised based on input we have received from the community and in collaboration with the Ministry of Transportation prior to the preparation of construction drawings.
