Wed, Feb 24: Come to the Toronto Bike Awards!
Ontario Transportation Minister Glen Murray has announced $25 million for cycling facilities on provincial highways and municipal roads over the next three years in an effort to make Ontario Canada’s premier cycling province.
The money, the first that has been specifically set aside for biking in the provincial budget, will be for quick wins and pilot projects.
But it’s a new policy to incorporate cycling in every provincial highway and bridge project that some bike advocates are calling a game-changer.
It means cycling will be automatically incorporated into road works, Murray said Monday at the Ontario Bike Summit.
