New Dunsmuir Bike Lane Open
The new bike route through downtown on Dunsmuir is now ready to ride, just in time for summer!! It's FANTASTIC!!
Rode it last night for the first time, here's a video I found online:
The route is absolutely great - it's amazing the difference it's made on the street too. Traffic speeds are slower (not due to congestion, people are just driving slower on their own) and it's made a huge difference for the pedestrian quality along the road too. What i found really amazing is just how much more there is to see along there! I've driven along that route a gazillion times, but till then I'd never really SEEN things as there's way too much to be watching for as a driver.
More like this!! The cost of the route was only $800,000 - that's INSANELY cheap considering the impact. Vancouver really needs to keep up the good work!
