Here we go, the debate begins.
The city is holding a public session this Saturday on the bridge cycling lanes, as per this notice I just got sent. If you can’t make it on Saturday (though why you wouldn’t want to spend a sunny Saturday locked in a community centre, arguing about who gets which share of the road, I don’t know), I urge you to post your comments here because everyone, and I mean everyone, at city hall reads this blog religiously. I’m not kidding. I heard that the time I posted the video of Sam Sullivan singing with his band, it almost crashed the city’s computer system.
And if, by any chance, I’m full of it and the entire engineering staff is not on red alert for my blog postings, I promise to forward your comments to the appropriate person.
Public input sought on cycling on Burrard Bridge
The public is invited to give input on a proposed trial to reallocate
lanes on Burrard Bridge to improve cycling and walking:
Saturday, January 31
Roundhouse Community Centre, Great Hall
Pacific Boulevard and Davie Street
Information will be available on preliminary designs, including changes
to the intersections at both ends of the bridge.
Staff will be reporting back to Council in March, 2009 with a plan for
setting up a trial for later this spring.
