Lower speed limit and signage to make bridge crossings more comfortable for cyclists, motorists, and pedestrians
The way cyclists and motorists have been expected to share the road over the Bank Street Bridge, with its constrained lane widths, is unacceptable.
During peak periods, cyclists feel squeezed; when traffic volume is less, they are unnerved by the excessive speed of many vehicles passing mere centimetres from their shoulders. With the temporary lane reduction during Lansdowne construction, northbound motorists are currently not supposed to pass cyclists on the bridge, yet many do. This situation is made worse by the fact that the northbound curbside lane over the Bank Street Bridge is currently closed due to construction on the east side of Bank Street.
