Queens Quay East to get a separated bike lane


Good news… the BlogTO post says they are “entirely new bikelanes”, but this is false… there are currently bikelanes here already.

Still smarting from the loss of the Jarvis Street bike lanes, which were officially condemned at the last council meeting, Toronto’s cyclists have been taking plenty on the chin lately. Well, time for some good news. At the same meeting last Tuesday, council approved an entirely new separated bike lane on Queens Quay East to be up and running in under a year.

The new, 3.2-metre bikeway will run on the south side of the waterfront street from Yonge to Lower Jarvis between the sidewalk and the kerb. From Lower Jarvis to Parliament, the existing, on-street markings will be repaired and a new painted 0.7-metre buffer zone added between car and bike areas. Disused rail tracks and other hazards for bikes will be removed at the eastern end to improve the transition to the Don Valley and Lake Shore trails.
