Toronto's Public Works Committee meets Wednesday at City Hall to discuss proposals to create more bike lanes.

Routes that will be considered include downtown thoroughfares, like Richmond Street, between York and Bathurst Streets and Adelaide Street, between Simcoe and Bathurst Streets.

The proposed project has an estimated cost of $400,000.

    C.mon.The city has road-pinting pick-ups which can surely paint a km an hour, just for the cost of paint and a driver, possibly with a helper. Not $400,000.

    Disconnected groups of roads only reach their full utility when they connect into a complete network.

    Disconnected groups of rapid transit lines only reach their full utility when they connect into a complete network.

    Disconnected groups of bike lanes only reach their full utility when they connect into a complete network. The current bike-lane map looks like someone took a giant eraser to it, leaving a dozen unconnected small groups of lanes. We need to connect those islands.
