The issue of what to do regarding removing or paving over the decommissioned streetcar tracks on Wychwood Ave (following a recent cycling death there) will be discussed at the upcoming Public Works and Infrastructure Committee (PWIC) meeting this Wednesday September 12th.
A motion requests that City staff explore improvements to both decommissioned streetcar tracks and active tracks. If you’ve gone down in streetcar tracks, or had a near miss, write the PWIC and tell them your story, why things need to change and perhaps a few options. Jared from Cycle Toronto would also love to have some deputants from our ward during the day- if you are free that day, please email him (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he will connect with you.
