Toronto Bikeway Network will soon connect neighbourhoods across Toronto.
August 25, 2011
The City is developing a 1,000 km Bikeway Network that will ultimately link cyclists with neighbourhoods and destinations across the city. The network will serve both commuter and recreational cycling. It will be comprised of connected bicycle lanes, shared roadway routes and multi-use pathways in parklands and hydro and rail corridors. When completed, all Toronto residents will be within a five-minute bicycle ride to the Bikeway Network.
The Bikeway Network will include various street-scape features such as benches, pedestrian-scale lighting, and bike parking. The current projects under construction include the Gatineau Hydro Corridor in Scarborough, The Finch Hydro Corridor in North York and the CN Leaside in East York. These projects are highlighted in red below while existing bike trails are highlighted in green.
