Cycle Hamilton has prepared a response letter with regards to the planned closure of the Cannon Cycle Track during a construction period this summer. This letter was directly to Councillors Farr and Nann. This letter has been pasted below.
- Will all of the motor vehicle lanes be closed between James & Sherman from May to August? If there are provisions for motor vehicles along the construction route, we believe there should also be provisions for people cycling along Cannon;
- We’d also like to understand the process by which these decisions get made. To our knowledge, neither the Hamilton Cycling Advisory Committee or Cycle Hamilton were consulted about this decision to completely close the lanes. Any insights that you can provide will be helpful to us as we navigate future construction projects.
