The WWCA has several priorities this year. A major one is to be involved in Westmount’s Master Traffic Plan. We have spent many hours developing ideas for the plan and have given our work to Genivar, the company who is doing the plan for the city.
We have been and will continue to be involved in the MUHC construction process as it concerns active transport. A the moment there is a great emphasis on cars with a large amount of space dedicated to parking at the site. We want to see cycling and pedestrian access front and foremost as means to get to the hospital.
We would like to work closely with the NDG Cyclist and Pedestrian Association. A major project for both of our groups is to have a protected bike path along Côte St Antoine linking both cities with downtown.
We continue to support winter cycling through Westmount and we continue to argue for keeping the de Maisonneuve bike path open as the safest way of crossing the city.
A more thorough update will come after our next monthly meeting the end of March
