Operating on the premise that we’ve built Greenways before in Metro Vancouver, and don’t have to start from a conceptual vacuum, I rode the Railway Greenway in Richmond yesterday.  It follows the route of the ancient (1902 vintage), pre-motordom, Interurban tram line from (more or less) the north arm of the Fraser to Steveston.  History material HERE.

The Greenway map (above) is out of date, it seems, since the ride yesterday was on asphalt.  The Greenway passed through totally car-dependent suburbs, but still attracted people as you can see in my pix. It’s around 5 km long, roughly half the length of the Arbutus Greenway.
