Steve wrote about the construction project’s impact upon pedestrian and bicycle traffic:“Project Co.” together with Metrolinx will supposedly “minimise” risks. Whether this will actually be achieved, especially under conditions of less than ideal weather and at night, remains to be seen.
Needless to say, places that actually care about human life have devised ways of safely handling pedestrian and bicycle traffic through construction sites. Here are some videos of such access:
- The Big Detour Utrecht
- Cycling Through a Building in Amsterdam
- Four More Examples
- What Happens When a Cycle Path Has Been Dug Up?
And sometimes a temporary bridge is built to get people through construction sites. see:
When I watch videos from places that routinely do things right I experience a variety of emotions. Those emotions start with eye-rolling and face-palming, but soon escalate to a fairly high level of anger. There are well-known ways of doing this construction safely. So I get angry at those people who have such a callous indifference to human life that they choose to do things in a way that is grossly unsafe.
