Stop cycletracks in calgary
The latest assault of the CycleTracks in Calgary is the NorthMount Dr. N.W. so-called 'improvements'
and will install a two way cycle track on the northside and take away all the parking on the north. This can
be stopped only by organized visible opposition from Northmount Dr. residents. This time they have
gone too far! Send your emails, pictures, complaints to be published on this website.
Let's organize a demonstration against this. Capri Avenue is a perfect quiet traffic alternative with no need for lost parking
or extra signage. Realize that signal lights favoring bikes will sooner or later be added to congest traffic even further.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to see if a demonstation can be scheduled. Or phone 403-253-0676
Doesn't the Zany Calgary Northland Cycle Track Inspire you with horror as to what they will do on Northmount Dr. NW?
Cycle Track Pilot Project - An Independent Assessment
Manning Press Release
Analysis into the citys Cycle Track report reveals the city has retroactively changed the programs targets, made several data errors and mischaracterized results
After carefully reviewing the City of Calgarys Cycle Track report, the Manning Centre released analysis today that shows a number of targets have been retroactively changed to make the targets easier to meet, without disclosing this downgrading to the public or council. Further, the report includes several data errors and has mischaracterized some of the results.
City administrations report to council scored the project against 106 metrics that were set prior to the launch of the Cycle Track in 2014. The Manning Centres in-depth analysis of the Cycle Track Pilot Project shows that, of these 106 metrics:
17 metrics have been retroactively changed by administration in
order to make the target easier to meet - sometimes even the new,
lower targets still werent met.
Despite the citys claim that the Cycle Tracks would and have
improved cyclist safety, every single
one of the five Cycle Track routes saw an increase in collision rates
We found several instances where the city appears to have gone back and downgraded the original goals of Cycle Track, said Peter McCaffrey, Director of Research at the Manning Centre. In other cases, the city appears to have made calculation errors and have evaluated certain results as more successful than they actually were.
Council would be wise to explore the irregularities we flagged before voting on whether to make this pilot project a permanent feature of Calgarys transportation system, added McCaffrey.
