Dear Mayor and City of Hamilton Councillors,
Just a quick note to tell you that I support the City going ahead with the installation of LRT in Hamilton. It would be my dream to have just LRT in the core, going to the east, west and central mountain, Ancaster, Dundas and Stoney Creek.
It is time to rid Hamilton's core of traffic, make the city more user friendly for bicycles. (Note: the new bike lane up the Jolley cut is wonderful but where is the bike lane down the cut? Soon enough, someone will be taken out on the down curve or are we supposed to use the new walkway?)
Many European cities are making their cities unfriendly toward the car, i.e. no synchronized lights, longer wait times for green lights, less parking spaces for cars but more spaces for bikes etc.
Being disabled, you would think I would prefer taking our car but I prefer walking, taking the bus, or riding my electric bicycle (with the exception of going down the mountain). Going down the mountain is tricky and my husband prefers I use the sidewalk on the Jolley Cut because he is honestly afraid I will be hit by a vehicle.
