I've noticed a bunch of roadwork and resurfacing going on this summer. I don't think there was a budget increase, just a bunch of negative publicity? Now that they have all the asphalt we pay for, and everyone has to put in full days, things are actually getting done.

I have been really disappointed that nothing is changing...anywhere. So many missed synergies and opportunities. Even just painting some lines and adding street parking would do so much. So this idea is cheap and awesome. Maybe it has to change when we see how LRT pans out, but for now I think it's a great idea. Sadly, they're going to want studies, and traffic counts, and endless meetings...proposals, tenders, partnerships and a whole bunch of weasel words only so it can be used as political capital. When it does get done, it will have cost us a whole bunch.

Wait...anyone know where to rent a paint truck and some reflective vests?? I mean..theoretically and all... What's the worst? Vandalism charges for painting our own lines? Would the works guys just show up, see it had been done already and head off to the pub? Just curious. ;)
