With new bike lanes coming to three different roads in the span of three years, Coun. Tim Tierney says his east-end ward is no longer the “black hole” of Ottawa’s cycling network.
There was very little cycling infrastructure in Beacon Hill-Cyrville before he was elected in 2010, Tierney says, and there were several missing links in the network that left some cyclists and would-be cyclists feeling unsafe.
On Ogilvie Road, for example, there are painted-on bike lanes in each direction between St. Laurent Boulevard and Blair Road.http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/beacon-hill-cyrville-no-longer-cycling-black-hole-councillor-says
