Laurier bike lane audit recommends more colours, longer buffers, fewer signs

A safety audit of the Laurier Avenue segregated bike lanes, launched after the death of a cyclist last year, recommends adding more colouring, warning infrastructure and barriers along the increasingly popular downtown cycling route.

The Dutch firm Mobycon, which has an Ottawa office, completed the audit in early September and the city shared the results with council on Tuesday.

The greatest safety concern for cyclists and pedestrians in the bike-lane stretch of Laurier Avenue is right-turning vehicles, the audit says.
