A few weeks ago we shared a construction photo of the new streetcar/bikelane infrastructure on Roncesvalles Ave… essentially the road rises up to sidewalk level at some streetcar stops to not only allow easier streetcar boarding, but allow cyclists safe passage (ie. not having to ride on the streetcar tracks to pass the streetcar stop).
Now, shared on the City of Toronto’s Cycling Facebook group is a photo of the (almost) completed “bump-out”… all it needs now is signage and pavement markings (which are scheduled to be added in the spring).
I’m tempted to call these “bump-lanes” or “bike-bumps” or something. Hmmm.
What do you think of this (almost finished) infrastructure?Wed, Feb 24: Come to the Toronto Bike Awards!
