The goal was to talk to local area residents, and use local knowledge to identify cycling routes for infrastructure projects that could be completed in 2009 and 2010. In May 2008 and August 5, 2009 Toronto City Council approved the installation of a "contra flow" bicycle lane on Shaw Street, from Dundas Street West to Harbord Street, and from Barton Avenue to Dupont Street. In order to create a connected cycling route, shared lane road markings called "sharrows" would also be installed.

Shaw Street is currently one-way southbound, between Dundas Street West and Dupont Street. No road users are permitted to travel northbound on this section of Shaw Street. The installation of a "contra flow" bicycle lane will provide cyclists with a space where they may legally cycle northbound. Because the "contra-flow" bicycle lane is for the restricted use of bicycles only, Shaw will become a twoway street for bicycles. Because motor vehicles are not permitted to drive in the bicycle lane, Shaw street will continue to be one-way southbound for motorists. "Contra-flow" bicycle lanes exist in many neighbourhoods in Toronto. An example of an installed west-end "contra-flow" bicycle lane that is in use is on Montrose Avenue, between Harbord Street and Bloor Street West. A "contra flow" bicycle lane, will make Shaw St. a 2-way street for bicycles between Dundas St. W and Dupont St. What is a "Sharrow"? "Sharrow" markings are used in shared lanes to indicate the ideal cyclist position in the lane (away from the curb and parked cars) and to remind drivers to share the road. Sharrows are marked on the roadway with two white chevrons and a bicycle symbol. Sharrows do not include a diamond symbol. The diamond marking for "reserved lanes" is used in bicycle lanes. Parking on Shaw Street The installation of bicycle lanes and sharrows on Shaw St. will not affect the number of on-street parking spots available. Where a contra-flow bicycle lane is being installed, between Dundas St. West and Dupont St permit parking must be maintained on one side of the street, and will no longer "flip" Shaw St "Fluxo Contra" Ciclovia Example of how "sharrow" markings will look, between Dundas St. W and Queen St. W Nós convidamos você a uma reuniao e caminhada pública para discutir os planos para instalar um percurso de bicicleta na Shaw Street, entre as pistas de bicicleta existentes na Davenport e uma conexão com o "West Toronto Railpath (Sul Fase Seção 2)", que está em atual sendo planeado. Informação Em Maio de 2008 e 05 de Agosto de 2009, O Conselho Municipal de Toronto aprovou a instalação de um "fluxo contra" ciclovia na Shaw Street, de Dundas Street West até Harbord Street, e de Barton Avenue até Dupont Street. Para criar uma rota de ciclismo ligado, marcações na estrada de pista comum que se chama "sharrows" também serão instalados "Contra-fluxo" ciclovias existem em muitas áreas de Toronto. um exemplo existe na West-End. Aqui, "contra-fluxo" ciclovia que está em uso na Montrose, entre Harbord Street e Bloor Street West. Estacionamento Na Shaw St A instalação de ciclovias e "sharrows" na St. Shaw não afetará o número de lugares disponíveis de estacionamento na rua.
