Herring Cove road bike lanes project killed

In the July 6 Chronicle-Herald, Michael Lightstone reports:

“A controversial repaving project in Spryfield that potentially was to include pavement markings for bicycle lanes is going ahead without the bike lanes.

Halifax regional council Tuesday authorized the $1.1-million roadwork after the local councillor presented his colleagues with a 2,639-name petition objecting to remarking the road to accommodate the bicycle lanes.

Coun. Steve Adams (Spryfield-Herring Cove) said business operators and others were worried about a city staff proposal that would have seen a 900-metre section of Herring Cove Road cut to two lanes from four to accommodate bike lanes on each side.

Businesses feared traffic would be reduced and that would hurt their bottom line.”
