Delta wants to be to more cycling-friendly.
The city is currently undertaking public consultation for a new cycling master plan to develop a well-connected and complete cycling network.
“It will outline strategies, recommend infrastructure, policies, and education to help enable and encourage cycling as a practical and convenient form of transportation,” according to the city.
Council last fall agreed to award a $55,500 contract to a consultant to help identify and evaluate potential locations for cycling infrastructure improvements within the municipality, as well as update the cycling route prioritization model in a study from a decade ago.
In addition, the new cycling master plan project includes verification of existing routes and the development of road cross section drawings for recommended cycling routes, a report to council notes.
A key component of the project involves consultation with the cycling community and public engagement to gain a better perspective on the cycling needs of the community.Residents have until Feb. 5 to complete a survey available on the city’s website at https://www.delta.ca/.
