HELP TO GET A BICYCLE BRIDGE ACROSS THE VALLEY OF DEATH IN NDG AT DE MAISONNEUVE AND DECARIE

It is hard to believe that a bicycle bridge across de Maisonneuve at Decarie is not in the plans for cycling at a time when the transportation for the MUHC is being developed. http://www.freepresspaper.com/pdf/FP-Apr-11-2012.pdf

 It is a very dangerous intersection no matter where one is headed.  It would promote cycling because it would increase cyclists’ safety.  And compared to other infrastructure projects it is not expensive.  Is this another sign that cycling and active transport are not a priority with governments?

The NDGCPA (Notre Dame de Grace Cycling and Pedestrian Association) is organizing a mass critique ride Monday May 7th when the NDG borough meeting is taking place. Cyclists are asked to meet at NDG park (Girouard and Sherbrooke) at 1730h to leave  on mass at 1800h to the NDG council meeting  which starts at 1830h.  Children are welcome.

The Westmount Walking and Cycling Association supports this initiative and will be asking its members to participate.
