Our letter to the city regarding some improvements to cycling infrastructure in Ward One got a quick response from the councillor, followed shortly by this response from city cycling staff:
Thank you for these ideas, much appreciated.
The City is currently updating the Cycling Master Plan/Transportation Master Plan so I have shared your original attachment with Steve M who is managing this update. Bike lanes on Emerson St have been added to the list of ideas. Also, we are currently adding additional route signage along some of these connections mentioned, so some improvements are already underway.
Finally, McMaster University is reviewing their Master Plan as well, so we will share any of your relevant connectivity suggestions with them.
