City to launch streetcar track bike safety project

The city is set to embark on a pilot project to keep cyclists safe from a ever-present menace: streetcar tracks.
 
A report going before the public works committee next week recommends testing safety measures at trouble spots where riders frequently get their wheels caught in the tracks.
 
If approved, the pilot project will go ahead in the summer of 2013, and will test out measures to prevent wipeouts on the rails including signage, two-stage left-turn boxes, and pavement markings that direct cyclists over the tracks at safe angles.
