Bike lanes too close to traffic

Dear Sir:

Eby Street in the horseshoe area was repaved this summer. A bike lane was added.

At the intersection of 4800/4700 Tuck Ave. at Eby Street is a bike lane that runs towards downtown and bears the painted symbol of a bike.

The problem with the bike lane being there, is it is too close to the road where the cars travel.

There is the road for the cars, and right beside it is the bike lane, and right beside that is gravel, then grass, and then a sidewalk. This is not safety. The bike lane has to be in further away from the cars.

The gravel part that is there should have been paved, and that is where the bike lane should be so that it is away from the cars.

With all the talk about safe bike lanes, Terrace bike lanes are not in a safe place.

Yvonne Nielsen,

Terrace, B.C.
