Pandora Avenue – Victoria’s First Protected Bike Lane

December 6, 2017 NACITE Luncheon

Presented by Nadine King, P.Eng., POTE

 

NACITE welcomes Nadine King, P.Eng., PTOE of WATT Consulting Group to talk about the design and construction of the Pandora two-way cycle track, the City of Victoria’s first two-way protected bike lane. The Pandora cycle track represents a key piece of Victoria’s AAA cycling network planned for the core area.

Nadine’s presentation will cover many of the design considerations associated with the cycle track including transit accommodation, on-street vehicle and bicycle parking, pedestrian safety, no-right-turns-on-red, traffic and bicycle signals, bicycle boxes, and public consultation/property owner concerns. Nadine will also discuss emerging trends related to implementing cycle tracks and speak specifically to the challenges and lessons learned in Victoria.
