OTTAWA — A group of Centretown residents has submitted a petition with more than 2,000 signatures demanding the removal of the segregated bike lanes on Laurier Avenue, between Bronson Avenue and Elgin Street.
The petition was signed by local residents, business owners, service providers and visitors of Laurier Avenue West, who largely are concerned with the loss of parking spaces due to the bike lanes, said Janine Hutt, the Ccair of the Bay/Bronson Residents’ Action Group for Fair Access to the Road (BBRAGFAR).
“Not only were our buildings’ front entrances literally barricaded with concrete barriers, residents lost (parking) access to both sides of the street,” said Hutt.
