and treats after presentation
King Street West - looking at how to bring the contra-flow lane further into westdale - problems with HSR bus stops.
Hatt Street - Dundas BIA opposes bike lanes on Hatt due to loss of a few free parking spaces - Other projects - looking good for:
- North Service Road linking Niagara route with Confederation Park - series of low-volume on-street route combined with paved shoulder on N. Service between Grays and Fifty Road
- Lift Bridge - water front trail - both Hamilton and Burlington are ready to make a loop under the bridge using existing tunnels on either side of the canal - these would bring cyclists to the bay side of the lift bridge for a safe crossing from and back to waterfront trail.
