At the opening Joe Cressy said the final tally is $20 million, with a portion of that coming from the developers. The budget for the "new bridge" was $19 million.So, do we have a final number on how much this bridge ended up costing versus the original bridge that Rob Ford cancelled “because it was over budget”, not accounting for the 7 year delay? Let me guess: not much was saved if anything.
That's not bike friendly at all. Crossing Strachan on bike at any intersection is not easy. If the intention of the bridge was to provide a safer passage for pedestrians and bikes to access the waterfront shouldn't they have included a bike path along Fort York Blvd?My understanding is that you would have to cut over to Strachan at Fleet Street and go a block south on the on-street bike lanes, So kind of, but not really.
