Because we need to move the cars around so fast. getting to westdale from Fortinos means you have to walk east to dundurn first. You have to cross east. Then cross North. Then cross West. Then cross a highway ramp.

On a Bike, I'm not even sure how you are supposed to do it... you can't ride on the sidewalk, and I don't think there is a left turn from fortinos onto dundurn. So to access that bike lane, you'd ride out the fortinos parking lot, south onto dundurn. left onto main. left at the next side street. left on king. cross 4 lanes of traffic to the bike lane. and still have to cross a highway overpass.

This intersection is a perfect example of what is wrong with the transportation network in this city.

That you can't see that this is not a balanced system speaks volumes to your state of mind.
