New bike lanes to be torn up

Metrolinx says that they will be tearing up bike lanes that are still being built.

The path in question is on Eglinton, near the flats.

From the city.

In a meeting on September 28, Mike Mattos pointed out that Metrolinx is going to be moving the bike path from one side of the road to the other as it builds the new Mount Dennis Station—and the path isn’t even yet finished. “You’re going to rip up the bike path that is being built as we speak”, he said.

A spokesperson for Metrolinx said “The city [is] installing their multiuse path as part of their capital projects for this year…. We did acknowledge that that is being built now and that …. the decision was made as different pros and cons were balanced that at least the community, you know they’ve been waiting for years for this amenity, and for the next couple of years anyway, they’ll be able to use the bike path. “

While this seems like a case of bad planning and a waste of money, the path will remain open during construction.
