Frustrating indeed - especially with the number of recent missed opportunities!

Bay Street South is another example. The Cycling Master Plan calls for a bike lane along this stretch, yet this week the city expanded the pedestrian realm near Central School via paint and bollards. In some cases over 1/2 a lane has been set aside for pedestrians, squeezing cyclists in tightly with traffic. Could this space not have accommodated the very bike lane that the CMP calls for?

It's great that pedestrian interests are finally being looked at seriously, but not when they unnecessarily compromise the safety of cyclists. A bike lane is also a great buffer between vehicular traffic and pedestrians!
