    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    And how do you change the culture? By introducing bike infrastructure. Europe hasn't always been a bike paradise land. It took a lot of time to change the mentality. There are many cities in Europe that are not bike friendly at all. You wouldn't want to bike in Rome.

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    ^^ There are bike lanes around the rec centre in Terwillegar, but that's it. I live in Terwillegar and walked everywhere and didn't see any painted bike lane. The article is from 2009. The city was learning how to build a proper bike infrastructure. How did it piss people off? I don't get it...

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    Where in the suburbs did the city put bike lanes? lol I personally didn't see any. Most of the bike lanes built in the core are protected, if its a busy street. Bike lanes are controversial in the heads of some stupid people. And most of them drive and will never go for a run/walk, let alone...

    Thats actually the perfect time to spray it. Right before the snow. Otherwise seeds could star to germinate and then die when the snow hits.

    This is BS, not rights... dirt field in the middle of downtown. Can't the city at least make the owner surface it with asphalt?? I hate those parking lots, especially walking there in the mud. Third world.

    People who say we should slow down LRT - isn't it the reason why Edmonton has build only ONE LRT LINE since 1978?? It's been 44 years, how much more do we need to slow down? This rhetoric just makes me mad.

    It's almost a generalization. Japan has its share of issues and is not perfect. But hey, you as a tax payer can very much use your power and vote for your mayor/city counsellor. Not sure what else you want. We don't live in a perfect world.

    Well, lets see what's going on with bigger projects in Canada: LRT line in Eglinton pushed by 2+ years. Construction started in 2011! https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/eglinton-crosstown-lrt-court-decision-1.6031542 LRT in Ottawa delayed by 15 months...

    I am honestly impressed how fast this line has been built, taking into account the complexity, a bridge across the river, a tunnel etc. A global pandemic, excuse me. We do not live in China with half a billion labour force and no labour standards. In a few months, we will have the newest, one...

    Did anyone bother to read the article? We are having once in a century event, a pandemic, hello? This is a huge project, and the fact it's delayed, due to valid reasons, shouldn't be a surprise.

    Jasper Avenue New Vision / Imagine Jasper Avenue

    It is always a matter of priorities. There will never be enough money. But, I would think that the city's main avenue would rank high on that list of priorities. Especially, since it has been left to decay for decades. There is no competition in my ward, and the current counsellor will be...

    ^ I agree. I am impressed with landscaping efforts along the line. So many varieties of low maintenance for the climate bushes and grasses and no ugly sod.

    Hey TAS, Maybe you should read this over again? Because I can't believe we are arguing about this again... https://edmontonjournal.com/news/local-news/the-history-of-the-funding-of-edmontons-lrt
