Link between the King St/403 bridge and Westdale finally complete!

A long awaited section of Hamilton’s bike network has finally been completed.

The gap between Westdale Village and the 403 Bridge along King Street has been filled.

The city has done a fantastic job of accommodating all users along this stretch.

Cyclists travelling Westbound from downtown will see some great changes as they approach the end of the 403 bridge.

The bus stop has been moved and the bus will no longer wait in the cyclists lane:

The two-way bike lane continues to connect to the two-way section of King Street:

Cyclists travelling East toward downtown from Westdale now have a sharrow that leads them onto the pedestrian island:

And on the island, cyclists have their own lane with a stop sign where they’ll cross King to connect to the two way bike lane Eastbound:

In the grand scheme this is just one baby step, but it is a very long awaited addition and promises to be well used and greatly appreciated.
