stripes on sanders
Some new bike lanes painted on Sanders Blvd in west Hamilton. With oversized lanes and low traffic volumes, a fairly uncontroversial installation. Compare this to the situation on Dundurn South, where some shop owners have opposed new bike lanes, and the city has delayed (but not cancelled) painting lanes during road resurfacing there until the spring. Thankfully the councillor has held the line on the benefit of new cycling infrastructure; hopefully other projects in other city wards will have the support of the councillor, and not bend to the first angry opponent of cycling.
