Review the Walk ‘n’ Roll Plan and Road Network Improvements

in News by

The public is being asked to review and submit input on the draft vision and draft road-network improvements for Walk ‘n’ Roll Kingston.

This is the City’s master plan to get Kingston on the move, with the goal of reaching the target of having 20 per cent of all trips being made using some form of active transportation.

Proposals for Walk ‘n’ Roll Kingston that were suggested at a June workshop, the second open house for the City’s first active transportation plan, can be found at at CityofKingston.ca/WalkRoll.

Up to Friday, August 4, you can go to the above webpage and offer feedback on a number of issues, including the six key principles guiding the Walk ‘n’ Roll active transportation master plan: safety, connectivity, equity, equality, accessibility and promotion.

There are also maps outlining where and when the City is considering creating in-boulevard trails, cycling tracks, buffered bike lanes, sharrows, multi-use trails and more.

“We know Kingstonians are out there enjoying cycling, walking and wheeling around Kingston this summer, using our existing facilities,” said traffic division manager, Deanna Green, in a release. “We’re asking them to let us know if the components of our draft plans make sense to them.”
