This is the intersection of Gaglardi Way, University Drive and Burnaby Mountain Parkway. The camera position changes often, but generally shows the intersection itself, with Burnaby and Vancouver beyond it down the mountain.


Tower Road North

Facing north on Tower Road, this view shows the prominent Water Tower structure in the background. For residential privacy reasons, some areas of this camera feed have been intentionally blurred.


Tower Road South

Facing south along Tower Road, this view shows the descent down to the South Campus Road intersection and beyond to University Drive East.


University Drive North

This is the view from the seventh floor of the Library at the Burnaby campus of SFU. The camera presently faces west-northwest along University Drive North and shows the roadway, with the West Mall Complex on the left. In the far distance you can often see North and West Vancouver and the north shore mountains.


Blusson Hall (BLU) Roof

This view is from the roof of the BLU building facing south. This area will be the site of the new Marianne and Edward Gibson Art Museum.
