A Map of Rossi’s Separated Bikelanes

A few days ago we told you about Rocco Rossi’s Flip-Flop on bikelanes on major streets (he likes the idea now).

The Toronto Star has published a map (above) of where these physically-separate bikelanes would be.

Rossi’s proposed network includes east-west lanes on Richmond St. between Parliament and Bathurst Sts., and the existing Wellesley Ave.-Harbord St. lane separated from traffic between Parliament and Ossington Ave.

Cyclists travelling north-south would use the existing Sherbourne St. lane that would be separated from traffic between Elm Ave. and Queens Quay; or, to the west, the St. George St./Beverly St. lane extended to Queens Quay.

Rossi says building dedicated lanes in other cities has cost between $168,000 and $454,000 per kilometre.

His plan was quickly denounced as “a last-minute, half-baked idea” by Yvonne Bambrick, spokeswoman for the cyclists union.

“All he’s doing is tweaking (routes) that exist already,” and separating them from traffic, rather than proposing a true network that includes the suburbs, she said.

What do you think of Rossi’s new bikelane plan?
