"I saw two sets of side walks - literally side by side - in an industrial neighbourhood. Pedestrian side walks that will likely never be used by pedestrians or cyclists"

I'd hope they aren't to be used by cyclists. Riding your bike along the sidewalk is against the rules of the road.

Seriously, though... there was a time, not long ago, when those sidewalks were used by thousands daily, by steelworkers who lived in the area and walked to work. It was long-term infrastructure that is now sadly disused.

I agree that pedestrian infrastructure along Rymal, now a heavily residential area in many parts, is disgraceful! More needs to be done to encourage walkability there.
