  • Bike-unfriendly barriers, Dartmouth waterfront trail.

    [image-1] What’s wrong? Bike-unfriendly barriers, Dartmouth waterfront trail. Who’s responsible? Terry Drisdelle, Waterfront Development Corporation, 422-5115. REMARKS The new “chicanes” were required by CN, says Drisdelle, because travelling through them requires facing one direction, then the opposite, so that it’s almost impossible to not see that one train a day rolling at five km/hr down the tracks. And yes, they were specifically designed to force bikers to dismount. Send your favourite municipal malfunction to onpatrol@thecoast.ca, or call 422-6278 ext. 113.
