The entire construction and maintenance costs of cycle infrastructure throughout The Netherlands is 30 euros per person per year. About $50 Canadian. Transforming the entire City of Hamilton - every street, every intersection, everywhere - with proper Dutch infrastructure constructed to the CROW design engineering standard would cost a fraction of the cost of building the Red Hill Expressway.

And it would then pay for itself with reduced health care spending.

Residential neighbourhoods can be transformed with nothing more difficult than steel security bollards to eliminate cut-through car driving. That's a cheap and effective way of keeping dangerous cars away from people, particularly children. That is one of the key reasons why UNICEF has determined The Netherlands to be the best country in the world to raise a child.
