The City of Kitchener’s strategic plan includes the construction of a continuous and protected cycling grid that connects adjacent neighbourhoods to the downtown. The grid is designed to target all ages and abilities of people who would like to bike more often but currently don’t feel safe riding downtown.
Following consultation of more than 4,000 people through the strategic plan and Cycling and Trails Master Plan, a final round of consultation is currently underway. Several streets are included in the grid, including Margaret Avenue and more. The grid connects to popular trails like the Spur Line Trail, Iron Horse Trail and the Great Trail, providing a new, safe and convenient way for people to access all that downtown has to offer.
