Stop the New Street Road Diet in Burlington Ontario

This petition had 3,316 supporters

The City of Burlington's recent decision to reduce New Street between Guelph Line and Walkers Line from 4 lanes to 2 lanes in order to accommodate bike lanes has resulted in increased traffic congestion and delays, increased difficulty in exiting feeder streets accessing New Street, and diversion of additional traffic to residential streets such as Spruce Avenue and Woodward Avenue. 

At the same time, this heavy volume of traffic congestion is a safety concern for the bikers who would be using the new bike lanes. 

Reduction of greenhouse emissions is a city wide initiative of which this Road Diet is part, yet the increased idling traffic resulting from this congestion may not help.

The goal of this petition is to encourage Burlington Council members to return New Street to 4 lanes and restudy where and how our valued cyclists can be best accommodated.
