I got my first taste of the new King Street between William and Union. It’s going to be culture shock for drivers, from 4 lanes to 2 narrow ones and multiple 4 way stop signs.
Yet still zero cycling infrastructure. I’m guessing the final implementation will also have zero cycling infrastructure.
Riding the narrow lanes last night, my impression was that there’s not enough room for a cyclist to ride a meter from the curb and be passed by a car with a metre of space.
You know what that means? ‘Take the Lane’ baby.
