Victoria wants input on bicycle master plan

The City of Victoria is tweaking its bicycle master plan, and staff want public input before they finalize the guiding document.

The city's bicycle master plan was created in 1995, since then the city has installed 41 kilometres of painted bike lanes, 2.6 km of multi-use trails and more than 1,000 bicycle parking spots downtown.

Separated cycling lanes have been nixed in favour of painted, on-street lanes, however dedicated cycling lanes will be installed on the new Johnson Street Bridge and along Dallas Road and Pandora Avenue in the coming three years.

Victoria's planned capital spending on cycling infrastructure is about $470,000 in 2014, and roughly $200,000 annually in subsequent years.

Visit victoria.ca/cycling to take an online survey or to sign up for one of three public workshops.
