City Council Votes “No” to University Avenue Bikelanes

Bad news from City Council today… coming after the good news of BIXI Toronto getting the go-ahead yesterday.

The vote was apparently tied… 13-13.  What happened to the other half of Council??

“City council has voted against putting bike lanes on University Avenue this summer — but one councillor may have accidentally voted the wrong way.

Coun. Paula Fletcher apparently voted against the bike lanes motion by mistake.

The proposal had been recommended to council by the Public Works Committee for a pilot study.

The pilot project would have set up a protected lane for bicyclists, using a temporary barrier that would have been removed in the fall.

Toronto’s cycling community has pushed for bike lanes on University Avenue because it connects to several east- and west-bound roadways, making it easier for cyclists to travel across the city.”
