Wolseley to West Alexander Corridor
Connecting Palmerston Avenue to the West Alexander Corridor
This project will look at options to encourage walking and cycling for people of all ages and abilities through the creation of a neighbourhood greenway along Ruby Street and Banning Street to link the Wolseley and West Alexander neighbourhoods. Ruby Street and Banning Street provide an important north-south connection between Palmerston Avenue and Notre Dame Avenue and beyond.

We want to hear from you!
We want to learn from you about what is important to you as we move forward with the project. This will occur initially to identify strengths, barriers and issues around mobility and traffic safety in the neighbourhood. Once options have been developed we will share them with you and request your feedback.
Tag your photos
Join the conversation about the Wolseley to West Alexander corridor by sharing your photos as you walk and bike along the route. Tag them with #WalkBikeWPG, #Wolseley, #WestEndWPG and whatever you'd like us to know about the picture. Use as many tags as you want to get specific, including locations like #BanningST or #ElliceST, conversational tags like #BikeWPG and #WalkWPG, or descriptions like #MoreLikeThis or #EasierCrossing.
The project team will be monitoring the hashtags and compiling the results until May 19th.

In November 2011, City Council approved the Transportation Master Plan (TMP). A key underlying goal of the TMP is to expand the range of travel options that are available to residents, workers and visitors, and to ensure that people are not dependent on one single mode of transportation. The TMP also called for the development of the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies.
In 2015, City Council approved the Winnipeg Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies (PCS), which provide a long-range policy framework for active modes of transportation for the next 20 years.
The Wolseley to West Alexander Corridor is a high priority in the PCS. It will create an important cycling network connection in the area, providing access to numerous schools, community amenities and businesses. This study will be the basis for including cycling infrastructure in future street renewal programs.
