Newly Paved Shoulders at Fernbank Road

IMG_8588

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.
