stopped-up grocery lane

The Hamilton to Brantford Rail Trail - pictured here looking eastward from the east side of the Main West Fortinos Supermarket parking lot, was recently blocked by these large stones (backpack in photo for scale) which allow pedestrians and cyclists passage, but not bicycles with trailers, for example.

The rationale for blocking the path this way was, we're told, to prevent Fortinos' shopping carts from being taken through.

The issue was raised with the local councillor and he has directed staff to find out how to open it up so cyclists can cart groceries, or children in bicycle trailers.

We'll keep you posted!
