As residents may have noticed, work has been underway to pave the shoulders on Fernbank Road from Shea Rd to approx. 500m West of Terry Fox Drive. The anticipated cost of $150,000 for this specific project is funded as part of the rural cycling route improvements budget of $4,050,000.
I first recommended this project to the City as this has been an area of concern for local cyclists. It is my hopes that these new paved shoulders will deliver a safer area for cyclists and pedestrians who use Fernbank to commute more confidently, providing more space for faster-moving vehicles to pass.
