City already beefing up bike route hotspots to calm traffic
My mail box is filling up with suggestions from city cyclists for even more improvements to Vancouver’s bike network in response to this week’s proposed $25 million cycling investment program. (I count about $12 million to create new routes, $13 million to upgrade, overhaul, plan and monitor to get to the $25 million in news reports.)
But city engineers are already at work on a number of bike routes to improve traffic calming measures. This should produce safer rides for cyclists and a quieter life for residents as more cars are prevented from cutting through neighbourhoods.
Full details of the current work were distributed to council March 31. I posted it the next day, but I’m doing so again given the renewed interest.
