Bike Lane Status Report

Martin Koob over at the information cornucopia that is BikeToronto has updated his 2007 Bikeway Network Projects: tracking the progress post from last week and has an updated version up now:

First there is an update from Bill Brown of Dundas E.A.S.T. that the Knox contra-flow lane is completed which you can see more information about in the following article. Knox Contra-Flow Lane Completed

Second Tammy Thorne of Spacing notes that Roselawn Avenue from Marlee to Salinas, which has been completed, was left off the list I posted. … Tammy goes into the issue in more detail in her [Spacing Article]. Her article has also generated a lively discussion on contra-flow lanes and where they could be added that is worth checking out.

Check out the BikeToronto post for a complete list of all 2007 Bikeway Network Projects and their status.

Looking north at the intersection of Eastern an Knox the new contra-flow bicycle lane can be seen along with the ‘bicycles excepted’ sign below the ‘no entry’ sign which permits only cyclists to travel northbound at this point.

MAPS! Helping cyclists avoid smoggy routes in Toronto and Montreal

It is essentially a Google Map with an extra layer representing the average concentration of […]

NEWS: Bloor Bike Lanes Pilot Should Be a Council No-Brainer. Here’s Why It’s Not. 

An excellent piece in Torontoist about why a bike lane pilot designed to collect data about benefits/detriments and overwhelming supported by the community is getting static from politicians: There really should have been little to no debate about this 2.5 kilometre bike lane pilot project running along Bloor Street West from Shaw Street to Avenue […]
