Cannon street slated for work - so let's make sure we get it right!

Posted May 17, 2013

The City is potentially going to be budgetting $23 Million for revitalizations to the Pan Am Precint - some of which is potentially going to be allocated for "redesigning Cannon between Melrose and Balsam Street North".  See the Spec's article here on the Pan Am Precinct community meeting. 

One of the striking things about the article is that while many people appear to disagree about some of the measures being taken around the stadium - issues like parking, potentially tearing down Parkview school and a second soccer pitch had some contention around them - the idea of redesigning Cannon street to slow down traffic and make the area safer and more vibrant for the people who choose to live there was one of the ideas that garnered support, with people calling it "good for the neighbourhood". 

We think that if something like calming traffic and installing bike lanes is good for one area of a City, it's even better if we do it on a larger scale.  Installing bike lanes that don't connect to anything doesn't work - we need a safe, effective network for cyclists - which is why we MUST seize this opportunity to make Cannon Street a safe cycling spine across the lower City.

The crews are already going to be on the ground doing work on Cannon - so why not do it right? Let's make it work for all road users, and create a destination street, not a thoroughfare.

I don't like striking. Actually I prefer to watch games from home but sometime it's very cool to visit the stadium. Of course there are much more emotins but you should always know where you're going and what the audience will be there.
