Strange planning at work

News Oct 02, 2009 Ancaster News

Welcome back to the Ancaster heritage village, Sept. 4 The News.

I read with interest the comments of Bob Wilkins wanting us to walk, run, cycle or skateboard to the Ancaster Village core. It would, indeed, be very nice if we could do this but there are not proper and safe sidewalks and bicycle paths.

HasMr. Wilkinsever navigatedLover'sLaneonarainyday as a walker or cyclist, let alone doing this in the winter? I see mothers walking their children to school on Lover's Lane who literally have to walk on the road where cars pass by in a hurry to get to work.

There is some strange planning going on for sidewalks in the Ancaster core. They start and stop for no apparent reason. Are pedestrians required to continually cross the street to find a sidewalk.

As a cyclist I do not feel safe on Sulphur Springs Road or Lover's Lane.

I live in the core, and I would rather walk or cycle to the stores in Ancaster, but as long as planners do not provide us with proper and safe sidewalks and bicycle paths, we will not be hurrying to do so anytime soon.
