Digital Workshop with City of Toronto
DCE teams with Netherlands Consulate in Toronto to bring cycling expertise to the Greater Toronto Area.
Cities around the world are making substantial improvements in cycling infrastructure in a relatively short period of time, investing in their economy, environment, health, happiness, accessibility, safety, and social equity. However, it is of the utmost importance that these changes are thoroughly considered and carefully implemented, to avoid potential mistakes and adverse effects.
To address these opportunities and challenges in the City of Toronto—in conjunction with the Consulate General of the Netherlands in Toronto—the Dutch Cycling Embassy presented a digital workshop on Tuesday, October 5th, 2021 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm (EST).
In this virtual session, experts from the City of Toronto and the Netherlands—including representatives from Goudappel, Mobycon, and Een Nieuwe Kijk—shared their knowledge and experience from decades of political processes, transportation planning, and infrastructure design. In addition to looking at three specific case studies within the City of Toronto, this session covered the following three topics:
1. Cycling Integration with Transit (including station parking, station access, network connectivity, infrastructure design and types, and on-street modal interaction).
2. Access Management and Intersections of Local to Major Streets (including design details such as pre-cast concrete curbs and raised/continuous foot and cycle paths).
3. Unique Cycling Infrastructure (including the design and construction of walking and cycling bridges/underpasses, regional cycling highways, and advisory bike lanes).
Netherlands Consul General Harman Idema kindly introduced the session. You can watch a recording on our YouTube channel.
