Like all cycling infrastructure, these protective islands are very cheap to build.

The total annual cost in The Netherlands of construction and maintenance of all their excellent cycle infrastructure is a not-so-whopping 30 euros per person. About $50 in Canadian currency. Dirt cheap.

The entire City of Hamilton could be transformed with Dutch style infrastructure constructed to the design engineering standards of the CROW Design Manual for Bicycle Traffic for a fraction of what was spent on the Red Hill Expressway.

Not only is cycling infrastructure cheap, but it pays for itself in reduced health-care spending. What a great bargain for the taxpayers!
