NEWS: City staff must install posts to make new bike lanes safer

NOTE: Send your requests for adequate separation during this pilot project to Transportation Services managers Stephen Buckley sbuckle@toronto.ca, Dan Egan degan@toronto.ca, Lukasz Pawlowski lpawlow@toronto.ca along with Public Works and Infrastructure Committee pwic@toronto.ca and for good measure include 311@toronto.ca.

You would think that the opening of a new bike lane would be a cause for celebration in the bike-riding world. But Cycle Toronto Wednesday released a blistering attack on a new bike lane on Adelaide Street West, saying the lack of physical separation makes the lane possibly more dangerous for cyclists than no lane at all.

“Transportation Services refuses to follow Council direction to install separated bike lanes,” reads the headline on a press release from the cycling advocacy group.
