Last week we started a more comprehensive audit of bike parking along the Danforth. First up, the Danforth BIA the stretch between Broadview and the Carrot Common:
Zoom in, have a look. In this BIA, 119 ring & posts. = 238 spots. Of which 6 (5%) are fully broken and unusable, and 8 (6.7%) are partially blocked with street furniture making them very difficult to use. Thus, total = 11.7% need 311's attention (broken or not accessible). Look at some of the shameful ones!
|Try fitting a bike between the ring and post and the garbage bin|
|Great place to store construction equipment, outside of Broadview Station|
|Winner. Post butted up against planner bed, newspaper box placed in front .|
Orange spots are areas we thought could accommodate more parking, either racks or ring&posts. Have some more ideas? please share in the comments.
We'll be working with the Councillor to figure out a plan to improve parking along the Danforth. Stay tuned. Also, we'll be moving further east, Greektown is up next.
