HALIFAX – Over the past couple months, Dalhousie University, Saint Mary’s University, Capital Health and the IWK Health Centre have been developing a Transportation Demand Working Group. One of the projects of this group is to develop a Bikeways Plan to explore improvements to the cycling environment in the Institutional District of downtown Halifax.

Over the next three months, planners with Dalhousie’s Cities & Environment Unit will be working with these four institutions and the community at large to develop a Bikeways Plan for the district.

Steve Bedard, Co-Chair of the Halifax Cycling Coalition indicates that “If you are interested in improving the state of cycling in downtown Halifax, mark these dates on your calendar and contribute to the overall plan! These are some of the biggest economic generators in HRM demanding change! Please, make a point to attend and support this change to HRM!”
