Walking past the area the next day the I remembered the Bobcats that do the sidewalks. Of course, from a management pov, that just means there are extra routes that the Bobcats will have added duties which equates into added expense.

And, I want to clarify that by pointing out these issues, I'm not excusing them and saying that less safety precautions are justified by increased costs. I'm just saying that there are a lot more factors to making the bike lanes separated spaces than we may be considering here. I may be wrong, but I suspect the issue of snow removal may be an issue City Hall is thinking about but the general public has not.

We all know that regardless of how things are handled elsewhere, Hamilton seems to have it's own prejudices, philosophies and fears it must grapple with that often produce half-arsed results on these kinds of projects.
