Queens Quay Bikelanes in Jeopardy

Last summer, the temporary installation of Quay to the City on Queens Quay felt (to me anyways) like a small “tipping point” in Toronto’s way to being a truly bike-friendly city. Cyclists loved it, pedestrians loved it. Drivers may not have liked losing half of the street, but having what I like to call “intermodal balance” (dedicated space for cars, transit, bikes and pedestrians) is something that is sorely lacking in Toronto (so far).

That was a trial-run for the permanent installation that was supposed to start construction this fall (if my memory is correct), but BikeLaneDiary is reporting that area businesses are putting up a stink (somehow believing that transit users, cyclists and pedestrians don’t shop or spend money) about them and that WaterfronToronto is doing another EA (Envrionmental acessment) of that stretch before committing to development plans.

Let them know you want these physically seperate bikelanes on Queens Quay. That Queens Quay NEEDS them for this section of the waterfront to have any sustainable future at all.
