Hi Liors, yes, that is correct. Also, the supposedly bi-directional lane is only a couple of feet wide…

It is weird in a way. The city is quite progressive, they have a 10 year bicycle plan to develop the bicycle network, there is an advisory committee on pedestrian and cycling infrastructure, and they have the policy goal to increasing walking and biking and reduce driving. Some bike projects work out well, but generally they keep hiring traffic engineers and consultants that come up with really quite bad plans. Even more so, when you participate in a meeting for a new infrastructure design plan and tell the engineers/consultants that you need, for example, a certain turning radius for a cargo bike, you get ignored…

Sorry for this rant. I’ll do my best to come up with something better!
