Bike-unfriendly barriers, Dartmouth waterfront trail. 

17.26-onpatrol-bike-path.jpg

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.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
