Less than 10 kilometres.
That’s the total length of new bike lanes that were planned to be painted in 2014. But with an election less than five months away and the year half over, they have yet to be approved.
Part of that plan is adding lanes to Harbord St. and Hoskin Ave. and approving a pilot project for Richmond and Adelaide Sts. Together those new lanes, totaling nearly seven kilometres, are the most action downtown lanes have seen in the past four years. The proposal is set to go before council June 10.
If you’re a cyclist, there is not much to cheer about.
