The City of Ottawa has mostly completed the design for the Montreal Road revitalization from Vanier Parkway to St Laurent Boulevard and will soon begin construction.
Bike Ottawa’s Advocacy Working Group (AWG) sent a letter to Stantec this week. We are concerned about the lack of safe cycling infrastructure in the design for temporary modifications on Carling Ave, west of Bronson.
The city plans to build grade-separated cycle tracks along Montreal Road from St. Laurent Boulevard to Vanier Parkway. Bike Ottawa advocates for cycle tracks all the way to North River Road.
In November 2018, Bike Ottawa expressed concerns about missing links in the Fisher – Baseline area in a letter to the city. This newly paved stretch north of Baseline ends at Baseline. And then… nothing.
Bike Ottawa surveyed the candidates for City Council. We received about 1400 responses from 66 candidates. To make your life a little easier, we lifted the four open questions out of our survey and only from the 7 new councillors on council.
October 22 is election day for city council in Ottawa. We asked all the candidates running for councillor or mayor to answer a short survey to understand where they stand on cycling and road safety to help you make an informed decision.
Recently the City of Ottawa succumbed to the pressure of just over 100 local residents to refrain from installing temporary bike lanes on Holland Ave.
The Healthy Transportation Coalition is going to make history on July 22, 2018 by installing the first-ever pop-up bike lane in Bells Corners, in partnership with the office of councillor Rick Chiarelli.
Attention Ottawa: we have a problem. We’ve reached the point where we actually have lots of bike lanes (and cycle tracks, and paths). We have many people cycling. That’s all great news. But, we also have a lot of people who drive, and they use highways.
Oh wow, there is a lot going on. And Bike Ottawa needs you to get involved. If you ride a bicycle on paths in Ottawa or Gatineau, then you’ll want to read this blog post.
