INFRASTRUCTURE: Big (Bad?) Changes to Harbord/Hoskin Bikelane Plans

It looks like city staff are changing their recommendations for separated bikelanes on Harbord and Hoskins due to the previous (bi-directional) design posing “unacceptable delays to all road users” – which sounds like code for “drivers whined about it and they’re more important than everyone else” which is a typical Toronto response.

Keep the middle lanes open for streetcars only (or buses on Yonge), and let’s open these streets up for business. Cars are choking us economically. If the city’s new mayor gets his way, […]
