Spotted: Colourful Cycling “Conflict Zones”

Parts of the Bloor East bike lanes are going green.

SPOTTED BY: Hayley Easto, from Biking Toronto.

WHERE: Bloor East, between Sherbourne and the Bloor Viaduct.

WHEN: Tuesday, December 3

WHAT: The City has decided that old-fashioned pavement-coloured bike lanes aren’t always good enough for Toronto’s cyclists. Road crews are painting certain “conflict zones”—areas where cars and bikes frequently interfere with one another—this attractive shade of green. For the time being, the experiment will be restricted to parts of Bloor Street East near Parliament Street and the viaduct off-ramp, and also bits of Wellesley Street. (And, of course, Sherborne Street has had bright-green bike boxes since last year.)
