Swapping parking for bike lanes: ‘What the hell kind of sense does this make?’
Ottawa Citizen

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, April 21, 2017

The potential removal of nearly 100 on-street parking spots so a councillor can blaze a trail for safe cycling in the city has some Wellington West residents asking for help from the mayor and demanding more consultation.

The drama centres on a 600-metre stretch of Spencer Street, between Western and Holland avenues. The residential street is one block north of the Wellington Street West commercial strip.

The city has upgraded the underground pipes and sewers and it’s time to finish the road reconstruction and landscaping.
