In early spring, Toronto Council adopted the Transportation Services staff report recommending cycle tracks be installed on Simcoe, Richmond and Adelaide Streets as a pilot project part of the Environmental Assessment Study to evaluate the feasibility of permanent cycle track installations.
Transportation Services’ goal was to implement these new cycling facilities as quickly as possible, so that cyclists and drivers could adjust to the new street design during July and August when traffic volumes are typically lighter.
In the early stages of this process, OTA surveyed its members to try and understand the impact physically separated bike lanes might have on them in the City of Toronto. Now that these tracks are beginning to appear, if you have any questions or concerns about the pilot project or would like to make comments, please do not hesitate to contact Lukasz Pawlowski ([email protected] / 416-338-6583) or Daniel Egan ([email protected] / 416-392-9065, who are organizing this project for the City.
