Separated bike lane through downtown by 2010?

February 4th, 2010 · 16 Comments

Apparently council today added to the existing staff recommendation by voting in favour of a plan to try out a downtown bike lane by the end of the year.

Here’s the motion that Geoff Meggs brought to council.

  1. THAT a separated bike lane be constructed on the Dunsmuir Viaduct at a cost not exceeding $300,000; source of funds being the 2009 Streets Basic Capital Budget (Bike Network), including a monitoring and evaluation program with a report back to Council regarding the results ;   
  2. THAT separated bike lanes, connecting the Burrard Bridge and Dunsmuir Viaduct to the central business district, be approved in principle with a report back to Council in the spring regarding the results of public consultation on the design and alignment as well as options for a trial of separated lanes in the central business district this year; 
  3. That staff report on options in 2010 to conduct a trial of a fully separated bike lane or lanes on part of the city’s existing local street bikeways.
