Laurier bike lane audit raises the standard of future cycling infrastructure
Ottawa Citizen

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, October 4, 2017

The Laurier Avenue segregated bike lane safety audit could put pressure on city council to elevate the standard for building new cycling lanes in Ottawa.

In an ideal scenario, the east-west bike lanes in the downtown core would be raised, completely coloured green, have their own traffic signals and pass through intersections that protect cyclists as the lanes cross vehicular paths.

The audit, whose results were released this week, has set the bar for safe cycling infrastructure as the city looks to expand segregated bike lanes.
