The hot button topic of bike lanes will be front and centre at City Hall, Thursday. The city’s Public Works Committee will be discussing the possibility of more of the controversial lanes for Toronto.
Bike lanes have definitely caused a lot of bickering recently. Cyclists took to the streets after council voted to remove bike lanes on Jarvis Street in the summer.
But now, it appears more lanes could be created in another part of the downtown core.
The Public Works Committee will be asked about an environmental assessment to help figure out if bike lanes can be set up on Adelaide and Richmond streets, between Sherbourne and Bathurst streets.
It’s not known if the lanes would be one-way or bi-directional lanes. The latter lanes would cost $1.35 million, and less than half that if one-way.
Are more bike lanes downtown a good idea? Or will it just create more animosity between riders and drivers?
