Join the city for their South Park Street bicycle lane consultation on April 25 from 7-9pm at the Halifax Central Library. There will be a brief presentation at 7:30pm, but you can come and go at any time. Staff are looking for feedback for potential changes either in 2016 or 2017 to extend the bike lane south to Inglis Street.
We need your support - show up at the meeting and ask for the bicycle lane to be protected.
According to the city, staff have an option to make the bicycle lane parking-protected, as show in our image below. It is our understanding that this will cost the same as providing a buffer in the door zone, which would leave cyclists vulnerable to collisions with cars.
Whether the city puts a parking-protected bicycle lane or an unprotected lane on the section from South to Inglis, they will be removing 25 parking spaces and relocating them to side streets. What's the point of removing parking if it's not done to provide safe cycling that is attractive to people of all ages and abilities?
Make your voice heard: Halifax cyclists want safe, protected bicycle lanes.
