According to this week's "Sustainable City" in the coast, HRM's new Active Transportation Plan includes bike lanes in any new road upgrades. QUESTION: What about the large section of Robie Street they have just torn up? It is one of the main arteries into the centre of the city and one would think with all the effort that has gone into ripping up both sidewalk and shoulder that the city would have considered bike lanes??? I have lived in this city for 7 years and have to say how disgusted I am with the lack of consideration for alternative transportation. I am sick of hearing all comments about "it's an old city", "the streets are too narrow" etc. The city should prohibit parking along the busy streets (ex. Quinpool Rd.) and make those sections into bike friendly lanes. Make the streets less deadly to people who decide to do their part and take alternate forms of transportation; it would solve a lot of problems.
