Mississauga Mayor Opposes Bike Lanes on Existing Roads

In a story published by the National Post today, recently re-elected Mississauga mayor Hazel McCallion is quoted as saying that she doesn't support providing a portion of roads for use as designated bicycle lanes. A local cycling enthusiast, Jeff Wachman, presented a petition to Council that requests "the city ''designate a one-metre-wide path ... in both directions along the full length'' of nine major routes."

McCallion told the National Post "When the roads were established in Mississauga, they were not established on the basis of bicycle lanes. The roads were built for cars and trucks"

The article goes on to say "McCallion said the petition to add bicycle lanes will be given its due consideration, but no traffic lanes will be lost to include cycling commuters.

''It's a pretty expensive thing to do just to find out if it works or not,'' she said.

Ms. McCallion said yesterday the city would only consider new bike lanes when a road was undergoing construction anyway."
