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.
