Queens Quay East - conversion of on-street lanes to Martin Goodman Trail
Anyone know the deal on bike lanes and the Martin Goodman Trail (MGT) on Queen's Quay (QQ) East?
I saw that the Public Works Committee passed an item in September to replace the current on-street lanes on QQ with the off-street MGT on the south side of QQ between Yonge and Lower Jarvis.
My question is what is supposed to happen at the transitions west and east of this section? Is the expectation that westbound riders on QQ have to swing across traffic to the south side of QQ to the MGT for 3 blocks, then swing back across again?
My assumption initially was that westbound riders would stay in the on-street bike lane, and only the eastbound riders would be expected to use the new section of the MGT, but the typical section included in the Council report shows no bike facility on the north side of QQ.
The way it looks like it would function to me based on the City report seems unworkable, so maybe I'm missing something. Looking forward to hearing comments from anyone who can shed light on this.
