One Montreal borough is taking action to ensure things don’t go back to normal. Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie has announced a pilot project to reduce car traffic and give priority to pedestrians and cyclists. The pilot project begins this summer.
The borough will establish nine “pedestrian-priority living environments” where only local traffic is permitted, “allowing local streets to offer more safe spaces for active users,” according to a statement.
It also promises “other innovative and safe measures” to “facilitate active travel and encourage the use of public space by residents, while respecting the rules of physical distancing.”
Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie residents will also see an additional 50 kilometers of bike paths take shape
