Fix the Roads

Posted on Mon, May 16, 2011 at 1:49 PM

Why are the most used roads in this city the least maintained? Barrington Street; Monastery Lane (one of the worst! borderline fatal at times); parts of Coburg Road (some of it was fixed last year, thankfully); good luck not breaking a spoke on Spring Garden; Quinpool; parts of Robie; and list your own because I only bike some of the city, most of the time.

Seriously, I almost break my jaw on these roads, and the plow damage is always the worst on the shoulder, curbside, or the twelve inch width where bikers are allowed to bike. This city, its managers, and its priorities are fucking ridiculous, and while this isn't a huge issue, it's a safety issue and I'm sick of it.

So, city of Halifax, please paint some fucking lines on the road, and keep the roadways safe. It's not safe to have to dodge huge potholes, veering into traffic at times, so I don't jolt my system and break my fucking neck. Or endanger a motorist!

I'll never understand why bike lanes are such an issue of contention for 80% of Council; I'LL BUY THE FUCKING PAINT FOR CHRISSAKE. —Just Wants to Bike Safely
