‘The Great Wall’ – Highway 401 – cyclists describe ways across the busiest highway in the North America
For cyclists and pedestrians, the 401 highway cuts Toronto in two – for them ironically, the highway is a barrier to transportation.
In exploring the ways in which cyclists navigate the Great Wall I hope we can discover what’s missing from the infrastructure puzzle to enable a sustainable city.
Today in comments – over at a post introducing the “Great Wall” theme here in The Blog – Todd Tyrtle left some tried and tested solutions. So far I’ve made a map of the first of his suggestions.
Click on the map image below (opens in a new window) to go to the map in The Wiki, which links to the original Google Map.
(You may be wondering, ‘What happened to Google Maps embed feature anyway???’. It’s in beta, still testing, hopefully it will be back soon.)
