MacDonald Bridge Halifax-Side Bicycle on-off ramp

Posted on Tue, Jul 16, 2013 at 2:00 PM

Who...who...or what designed this piece of crap? Does anyone know? Who was the genius who decided to make cyclists go down a hill and play cat-and-mouse with fast-moving cars on a blind corner, with zero momentum, to go back up the hill when exiting the ramp? Who was the person who, instead of listening to complaints about the ramp and making upper-level crosswalk exits (there's a bloody light on the left side already for f#ck's sake), built a higher fence to keep cyclists from safely exiting the bridge? This is one of the worst examples of backwards thinking I have ever experienced in my life. This piece of sh$t ramp has got to go! It is a danger, a frustration, an annoyance, and an engineering and city planning embarrassment. Halifax bureaucracy: stop treating cyclists like 2nd-class citizens, grow the f#ck up, and fire idiots instead of giving them bonuses and hiring their buddies and cousins. Morons. Hire intelligent people and encourage intelligent people to stay here by hiring them instead of your mentally-stalled family members! —Tired of Coming Home to Stupidity
