This is also currently the most used cycling route in Kits as shown on the cycling density map below created using data from here:

All that said, any improvement is better then no improvement, so if the City of Vancouver can pass the current proposal 2A as outlined here and then build a seperated route in 4-8 years, that would make me happy too.
