The city was warned the unique construction of the O’Connor Street bike lanes was “less safe” than other options, but went ahead with the plans anyways .

As CBC first reported, Dutch firm Mobycon Concordis was brought in to take a second look at the city's bike lane plan. The company suggested that two bike lanes be built on opposite sides of O’Connor, rather than having one lane with bikes moving in opposite directions.
