Bayly Street Multi-Use Path Design - Q&A

  • I'm 100% in for MUP. A great example to give residents is what Whitby has done from Lakeridge Road all the way east of Brock Street. The MUP is perfect, they even have painted signs on the road indicating it's a pedestrian and bicycle crossing at intersections. We need less bike lanes in Durham and more MUP. Cyclists feel unsafe on the road, drivers often are way too aggressive even with dedicated bike lanes. We're not protected on the road, but at least with a MUP we are on a graded surface.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have shared this comment with staff, we encourage you to come out to the upcoming public information session at the Town Hall on June 25th, 2018, from 6 to 8 pm in the River Plate Room.

  • what is the purpose of this Multi-Use Path. Who would really use it if it only goes from Harwood to Salem? A better use of money would be to install a MUP on Achilles from Harwood to Salem. I walk at least 3 times a week down Achilles and have to walk on the grass or road

    This segment of trail represents one phase of a continuous east-west trail through the downtown core that will link the existing Duffins trail system to the existing trail on Salem road. This trail will also connect to Whitby and would provide a direct link to the Ajax waterfront trail.

    Currently, there exists a multi-use path on the south side of Achiles from Salem Road to Harwood Avenue.

    A public information session will be held at the Town Hall on June 25th, 2018 from 6 to 8 pm in the River Plate Room.
