I wonder if part of the reason for not putting down knock-down sticks, bollards, rubber curbs, etc to physically separate the cycling lanes is the fact that in winter those barriers present problems in regards to snow removal.

We had knock-down sticks put up at Bold and Bay as bumpouts to help make walking to and from school (Central elementary on Hunter and Bay) safer. Over the winter, snow removal crews destroyed many as the sheer weight of plowed snow either knocked them over and or ripped them out of the ground completely.

I wonder if a barrier-less cycle lane will mean less maintenance cost in the long term and a clear lane for winter commuters?

Thoughts?
