A cycling advocacy group is calling the Elgin Street redesign a “missed opportunity.

”The proposal, which the Ottawa transportation committee will consider on Wednesday, includes a speed-limit reduction to 30 km/h, wider sidewalks and raised intersections. The number of on-street parking spaces would also fall, from 122 to 90, and flexible street space, for parking and patio use, would be added.

Bike Ottawa says the proposal fails to provide safe biking infrastructure.
