A handful of city councillors are raising concerns about the O'Connor Street bike lanes, after two crashes on the bikeway since it opened last week.

The city has put up electronic billboards warning drivers to watch for cyclists before turning left across the bike lanes but some councillors are questioning the safety of a two-way bike lane on a one-way street.

"Some automatically assume that a bike lane is safer than no bike lane. Clearly at this point it isn't," says Coun. Rick Chiarelli.
