Nearly three weeks after a cyclist using the Laurier Avenue bike lane died in a collision with a dump truck making a right turn, the City of Ottawa has moved some stop lines to increase the space between bikes and cars.Crews painted new stop lines approximately 5 metres short of the old ones, creating more space between vehicles and bikes at red lights.

The new stop lines were painted overnight Tuesday between Elgin Street and Bronson Avenue, a stretch of Laurier encompassing nine intersections. The changes were made wherever drivers are permitted to turn right.
