dc.description.abstractHammond Bay Road is a crucial thoroughfare for the Stephenson Point neighbourhood in Nanaimo and carries a high daily traffic volume. It meanders along hilly terrain, making travelling dangerous for all traffic users. This research explores the application of Complete Streets principles to Hammond Bay Road to provide safer road infrastructures for everyone. A survey was distributed to local residents and employees to collect insights from their daily use of this road. A case study in Courtenay and eight traffic observations were conducted to supplement the research. The findings suggest an urgent demand for a comprehensive improvement on Hammond Bay Road and prove the feasibility of Complete Streets on the road. Preliminary, conceptual designs are presented in this research to induce detailed designs and the implementation of Complete Streets on the road in the future. This research also provides a pioneering example of applying Complete Streets to suburban areas.en_US
