At last Wednesday's SJTRA meeting, Chris Gallop (Adam Giambrone's constituency assistant) mentioned that the City is moving forward with implementing bicycle lanes along Dupont St. between Dundas St. W. and Lansdowne Ave. This is part of the Toronto Bike Plan.

This section of bicycle infrastructure through our neighbourhood will connect to the West Toronto Railpath, the Annette St. bike lanes (installed at the same time as Dupont St.), and the Lansdowne Ave. bike lanes scheduled to be installed next year.

According to Mr. Gallop, the current timeline for implementation is: "The report is going to the Works Committee next Tuesday, City Council at the end of the month, and if approved they should be installed by approximately the end of the summer."

Here is the map (PDF) of the proposed Annette and Dupont St. bike lanes, including the on-street parking configurations.

More background and design details about Dupont St., Annette St., and others can be found in this document (PDF) too.
