Bike Lanes on Eglinton!
The Eglinton Crosstown LRT project is now underway. Planners are inviting the public to provide input into designs for a light rail transit line on Eglinton Avenue spanning 25 kilometres from Black Creek to Kennedy. This is the single largest infrastructure project in Canada and will transform the entire centre of Toronto. If we don’t act now, it will be a generation before we have another opportunity to make Eglinton a safe, complete street for all users – pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and motorists of all ages and abilities.
City is redesigning the streetscape along Eglinton as part of the Eglinton Connects planning project. Amazingly, the City is recommending full, separated bike lanes for the entire length of Eglinton - from Jane St to Kennedy!
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform Eglinton from this:
This is our opportunity to have safe and accessible cycling infrastructure along the whole length of Eglinton, including:
- Safe, protected bike lanes along Eglinton
- Connections to off-road trails and on-road bike routes
- Safe crossings over Eglinton
- High quality bike parking in accessible, well-lit areas
- Cyclist access into the new transit stations
- Clear, visible signage
