Improve road maintenance on high volume cycling and pedestrian corridors
It should also be second nature to think about pedestrians and cyclists in routine city maintenance and other operations. In 2005 the Toronto Cycling Committee requested that the City prioritize snow clearing on streets with high cyclist volumes. It would also make sense to prioritize repairs to the road surface on streets that have a high number of cyclists. A pot hole is bad enough in a car, but for a cyclist it can be a cause of injury or worse!
TCAT calls on the next Council to:
9. Direct City Staff to identify high volume cycling and pedestrian corridors for prioritization in routine maintenance (e.g. snow clearing) and repair (e.g. road patches).
