Traffic Study – Safer Cycling And Pedestrian Connection – Bridgwater Lakes and Bridgwater Trails
In November 2018, I brought forward the following motion for the Public Works department to study – they requested 180 days:
WHEREAS the main pedestrian and cycling connection from the neighbourhoods of Bridgwater Lakes and Bridgwater Trails crosses Bison Drive between Appleford Gate and Bridge Lake Drive;
AND WHEREAS the connection of these two transportation corridors passes over two lanes of roadway and through a drainage ditch;
AND WHEREAS there is a permanent desire line through the ditch indicating extensive pedestrian and cycling use;
AND WHEREAS both these corridors connect major public recreation amenities and lead to the newly announced $30M recreation fitness facility;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works direct the Winnipeg Public Service to study and provide recommendations, associated costs and an estimated timeline to construct an improved and safer cycling and pedestrian connection between the two transportation corridors from the neighbourhoods of Bridgwater Lakes and Bridgwater Trails, which crosses Bison Drive between Appleford Gate and Bridge Lake Drive.
I anticipate a report back soon, in June – July. See motion HERE
