Cyclists win in battle for Burrard
This is bound to be a controversial decision. As someone who rides the bridge to work everyday I'll be effected by this decision. I am curious to see what the impact is on safety to cyclists and congestion to drivers.
VANCOUVER - Cyclists will have sole access to one lane and one sidewalk on the Burrard Street Bridge on a trial basis, Vancouver city council decided Thursday.
The bridge's west curbside lane and east sidewalk will be designated for bicycles. All pedestrians will be rerouted to the west sidewalk.
The trial will begin on mid-to-late June. Council has not specified an end date.
