New Cadboro Bay Rd. walkway danger to cyclists

I am a resident of Cadboro Bay who regularly uses Cadboro Bay Road.

As a pedestrian, cyclist and motorist, I would like to express my concerns regarding the walkway which now encroaches onto the east side of Cadboro Bay Road, extending from Hibbens Close to Killarney Rd.

This section of the ‘Coastal Bike Route’ has been transformed from what was once a safe wide road into a narrow dangerous single lane, which puts cyclists in particular at risk.

It should be noted that there is an existing sidewalk on the west side of the road which is not heavily used and can be accessed safely from the 4 way stop at Sinclair and the new crosswalk close to Uplands gate.

I urge you to reconsider this plan before there is a serious accident. Thank you for your attention to this email.
