UPDATE: These plans have been approved by Council on July 2, 2020. You can read our latest post here:
The City of Victoria is doing it’s 2020 planning to bring the AAA bike network into many neighbourhoods next year, including on Government, Haultain and Richardson. While most of the concepts are good, some need your voice so that they are built to a truly AAA standard.
Kings & Haultain
We support the concept here, but the plan needs another connection between Haultain and Vancouver St to connect these two for downtown-bound people.
The proposed protected bike lanes will make this a much safer place to bike, and we support the concept.
We have concerns with the Richardson concepts and we completely disagree with the idea that advisory bike lanes with up to 3,000 cars/day is All Ages and Abilities.
We urge you to tell the city to follow council’s direction that shared space (including advisory bike lanes) must have between 500 to 1000 cars per day
We support the recommended concept of a 2 way protected bike lane. The width of the road and lack of intersections make this an ideal design.
This is a great opportunity to widen and put lighting through the narrow section of trail from Songhees to Johnson Street Bridge.
