The city has known for years that its plans for the new Booth Street bridge will endanger cyclists and pedestrians alike.

The big new bridge is part of the transit station at LeBreton Flats, which is being rebuilt for the 2018 opening of the light-rail system. Unveiling the final design a couple of weeks ago, the city showed off drawings that included a Booth Street bridge with no bike lanes, let alone separate bike tracks, which Ottawa’s policy on safe streets would ordinarily oblige it to build.
