Cyclist Only Lanes included in TTC Strike Traffic Plan

Transit Toronto runs down all the “traffic management” measures the city are enacting come Monday if there is a TTC Strike, including making some curblanes of roads cyclists only:

If a strike occurs, the City will extend the current bike-path network. It will designate the curb lanes on both sides of Bay Street between Queens Quay West and Yorkville Avenue, Dundas Street East between River Street and Broadview Avenue and Queens Quay West between Lower Spadina Avenue and Yonge Street for bicycles only. The City will ban stopping on all “bicycle-only” lanes.

We all know how well “designating” traffic lanes works – I’d love to see some kind of barrier blocking off non-cyclist traffic from these lanes (especially Bay) – even if it’s just pylons, or anchored ballons, or anything really.
