|Brown, David||Maybe||I support the Cycling Master Plan. In regards to speeding up the installation of cycling facilities, the City is currently experiencing some significant financial pressures. It may be necessary to prioritize spending and as a result some projects may have to be delayed to enable the City to make critical infrastructure investments.|
|Storm, Larry||Yes||There definitely needs to be work done on Hamilton's cycling plan. My cycling commute to work is along the Beach Strip to Burlington and it is a good 48 minute ride. It's not the case riding in town. Some routes would be well served with cycling only lanes and in area's where road space is at a premium we can use divided lines to at the very least ensure a safe track for all cyclists. We need to get all parties interested involved. Police services, cycling unions and concerned residents need to work together to come up with a system that A) gives cyclists a safe route, B) ensures that all cyclists abide by the law and C) continues to allow a positive flow of all other traffic.|
