Ottawa's transportation committee approved the first part of the city's new transportation master plan on Monday, laying out a vision to see fewer people relying on cars over the coming decades.
"This is just going to set the path for the next 25 years — that we want safer cycling. We want safer walking," transportation committee chair Coun. Tim Tierney said.
... The city plans to increase cycling routes by 50 per cent by 2046, which will add dozens of routes across the city.
The focus will be on addressing "critical missing links," the plan said, which means adding or upgrading roads, sidewalks and paths to ensure cyclists aren't left stranded trying to connect between routes.
