This might be a hint on where to go with the dangerous bike lanes downtown.
Why is that.
Urbanists will say that it is Ottawa’s first complete street and this achieves perfection in built form.
But realistically Churchill is much safer because there are fewer bikes being used there (and maybe fewer cars) than on the core bike routes.
Drivers have time to spot bicycles that aren’t travelling in a mass and the street is reasonably well-designed.
Not to take this too far but the serious problems in the core might relate to volume.
Many cars and many bikes interacting this closely might be the dangerous combination.
