Location, Directions & Maps

___________

The Achilles Foot Health Centre is located in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, in the Vancouver metropolitan area of the south-western corner of Canada.  
 


More specifically, we are located in the Guildford portion of northern Surrey, an eastern suburb of Vancouver.  It is highlighted in shaded green in the map below.

 


Surrey has a population of approximately 400,000 and is one of the fastest-growing cities in North America.  In fact, it will pass Vancouver in population in about the year 2020.

Surrey's location is very convenient to Vancouver to the west, the Fraser Valley to the east, and the U.S. border to the south. 

The major airport serving the area is the Vancouver International Airport (shown by the figure of the airplane on the left side of the map on the right.) 

However, some patients may find that flying into the smaller airport in Abbotsford, British Columbia (about 45 minutes to the east of us) is more convenient.  Others may prefer flying into U.S. airports at Bellingham, Washington or Sea-Tac in Seattle.

Below is a map of the Guildford portion of North Surrey, where our facility is located.  Our office location is indicated by the red star.  As you can see, we are centrally located within the Vancouver metropolitan area.  And we are quite easily accessed via the Trans-Canada Highway, Hwy. 1 (marked with a white maple leaf on a black background with the number 1 on it), and from the U.S. border (represented by the bottom edge of the map). 
 

Our facility is located immediately off the Trans-Canada Highway in the northern portion of Surrey, near Guildford Town Centre Mall, (which is represented by the rectangle shaded in this color on the map). 
 

 

As you can see below, we are immediately east of 152nd Street, the main street of the Guildford portion of Surrey.  

As you will probably be coming from 152nd Street, you'll wish to turn east on 102A Avenue.  There's a McDonald's on the northeast corner.  You'll go one short block, then take a right (south) down 152A Street to our address:

Achilles Foot Health Centre
Suite 102
10190 - 152A Street     
Surrey, British Columbia    
Canada    V3R 1J7

From the airport follow the exit signs directing you towards Vancouver.  You will then be crossing the Arthur Lang Bridge.  After you cross the bridge, immediately exit onto the
S.E. Marine Drive heading east. 

Proceed about 7 km (about 4.5 miles) and the road you're driving on will split, with S.E. Marine Drive requiring a sharp turn to the left and Marine Way, which is really the major continuation of the road you've been on, bending gently to the right.  You'll want to follow Marine Way, the more major road.  This doesn't require you to turn; just follow the main road. 

The next major intersection, about a kilometer later, is Boundary Road, which acts as the geographical boundary between Vancouver and Burnaby.  You'll turn left (north) on Boundary Road.

You'll follow Boundary Road about 5.5 km (3.5 miles) to the Grandview Hwy, which is also known as 12th Street.  (You can gauge how far you'll need to go by watching the numbered streets, which appear intermittently among named streets, get smaller.)

FROM INTERSTATE I-5 AND OTHER U.S. LOCATIONS SOUTH OF SURREY 
From locations in Washington State, (including Sea-Tac International Airport in Seattle and Bellingham International
Airport in Bellingham, Washington), Oregon,
California, Idaho, and other U.S. locations

Take Interstate 5 (I - 5) North until you near Bellingham, Washington.  At this point you should decide which border crossing you wish to use. There are three border crossings that you may wish to consider: 

1.  The Peace Arch Crossing  This is the main border crossing, and it's simple--just stay on Interstate 5 and the expressway will come right up on this crossing.  The downside to using this crossing is that because this is the main crossing to Vancouver, the border delays (when present) are almost always longer than any other crossing point. If you wish to use this border crossing, follow the instructions beneath the yellow heading below. 

2. 
The Pacific Hwy. Border Crossing, also known as the "Truck Crossing".  This exit usually has fewer delays than the Peace Arch crossing, and it's just off the main highway, so it's quite convenient, too. 
If you wish to use this border crossing, follow the instructions beneath the red heading below. 
     
3.
 The Crossing at Aldergrove.  The benefit of this crossing is that it will consistently have the least wait of any of the main border crossings--so it's a great choice on long weekends or other times when the border traffic is particularly heavy.  The downside to this border crossing is that it's further east than the other two crossings, so you'll want to make the decision for this crossing as you near Bellingham.    
If you wish to use this border crossing, follow the instructions beneath the blue heading below. 

In order to decide which crossing is quickest, you can tune your radio to News 1130 Radio (at 1130 on your A.M. dial), which gives you traffic updates including news on border crossing delays "on the ones"--that is 1 minute past the hour, 11 minutes past the hour, and 21, 31, 41, and 51 minutes past the hour.  If there are significant border delays, you should be able to hear them on this station.   

Border note:   To save yourself any hassles at the border, bring passport or other proof of citizenship and don't bring any guns, alcohol, or tobacco.

--------------- 

To take the Peace Arch Border Crossing, simply stay on I - 5.  It will take you directly to the crossing without having to get off the expressway. 

After crossing the Canadian border, you'll find yourself on an expressway, Hwy. 99.  Take the first exit past the border, 8th Avenue, and head east (to the right) to 176th Street.  When you get to 176th Street, turn left (north) towards the mountains.  You'll be traveling up 176th Street away from 8th Avenue several miles, and you'll see Avenue numbers you pass getting larger. 

When you pass 96th Avenue, you'll want to get onto Hwy. 1, the Trans-Canada Hwy..  You'll pass over the freeway (Hwy. 1), then get on that freeway heading west.  Traveling along Hwy. 1 West, you will take the next exit, Exit #50 (at 160th Street) to the right.  After you exit the freeway, bear left.  You'll pass over the freeway via an overpass to 104th Avenue West. 

Continue on 104th Avenue past 160th Street to 152nd Street and turn left.   Proceed down 152nd Street (south) a short distance to 102A Avenue (at the corner with McDonald's) and turn left.  Go one short block down 102A Avenue and turn right on 152A Street. 

We are located on the left-hand side of the street at Suite 102, 10190-152A Street on the street level.  Look for the sign Achilles Foot Health Centre.  There is free street parking on 152A Street and free parking in the parking lot behind the building marked as "Achilles Parking Only".  There is an entrance from both 152A Street and our private parking area behind the building.

To take the Pacific Hwy Border Crossing, you'll get off I - 5 in Blaine, Washington at Highway 543, which turns off to the right.  Follow the road about a mile and you'll be at the border crossing.

After you cross the border and enter Canada, you'll find yourself on Hwy. 15, also known as 176th Street in Surrey.  Stay on that road from O Avenue (the border) all the way north until you get to 96th Avenue.  (The Avenue numbers get larger as you head north.)  Shortly after 96th Avenue, you'll see a sign for Hwy 1 (the Trans-Canada Highway).  You'll pass over Hwy 1, then get on it heading west.  Traveling along Hwy. 1 West, you will take the next exit, Exit #50 (at 160th Street) to the right.  After you exit the freeway, bear left.  You'll pass over the freeway via an overpass to 104th Avenue West.  Continue on 104th Avenue past 160th Street to 152nd Street and turn left.   Proceed down 152nd Street (south) a short distance to 102A Avenue (at the corner with McDonald's) and turn left.  Go one short block down 102A Avenue and turn right on 152A Street.  We are located on the left-hand side of the street at Suite 102, 10190-152A Street on the street level.  Look for the sign Achilles Foot Health Centre.  There is free street parking on 152A Street and free parking in the parking lot behind the building marked as "Achilles Parking Only".  There is an entrance from both 152A Street and our private parking area behind the building.

To take the Aldergrove Border Crossing, (which you'll only want to consider if the other borders have lengthy delays), you'll probably wish to make this decision quite early--as you near Bellingham. 

After you pass downtown Bellingham, you'll find yourself nearing a sign for Bellis Fair Mall.  This mall is located at a Meridian Street, or Hwy. 539.  You'll take that road straight north, past the pretty town of Lynden directly to the Canadian border.  Once you cross the border, you'll find yourself in Canada on 264th Street heading north. 

Take 264th Street from the border (0 Avenue) north to 52nd Avenue.  Just past 52nd Avenue, you'll reach Hwy. 1, (the Trans-Canada Hwy).  Get on Hwy. 1 heading west.  Traveling along Hwy. 1 West, you will drive from 264th Street across the entirety of Langley and most of Surrey.  You'll pass exits for 200th Street and 176th Street.  You'll take the next exit after 176th Street, which is Exit #50 (at 160th Street) to the right. 

After you exit the freeway, bear left.  You'll pass over the freeway via an overpass to 104th Avenue West.  Continue on 104th Avenue past 160th Street to 152nd Street and turn left.   Proceed down 152nd Street (south) a short distance to 102A Avenue (at the corner with McDonald's) and turn left.  Go one short block down 102A Avenue and turn right on 152A Street. 

We are located on the left-hand side of the street at Suite 102, 10190-152A Street on the street level.  Look for the sign Achilles Foot Health Centre.  There is free street parking on 152A Street and free parking in the parking lot behind the building marked as "Achilles Parking Only".  There is an entrance from both 152A Street and our private parking area behind the building.
