Anyone know why they widened the sidewalk only halfway down the jolley cut? Some reason they didn't go all the way?

And I agree pointless to have an up lane (which is a challenge for casual cyclists) but not a down lane (which would be easy for all cyclists to use).

That said, they recently introduced bike lanes on a 10 block stretch of Queensdale on the mountain (between U. Wellington and U. Wentworth) and I can't for the life of me figure out what their purpose is since they're not part of a larger network of cycling infrastructure. It would be great if they connected to cycling lanes on wentworth to go up to limeridge, or down to concession, etc. but as it is, a 10 block stretch of bike lanes on a street that previously was wide enough for cyclists to safely ride beside cars, well...it just seems like it was set up to fail, so they can say "oh, we tried, no one used it".
