Virtual Event Virtual Event

The City of Toronto is working to make travel by bike safer and more inviting, which helps ease congestion, creates a cleaner environment, and promotes physical activity. One way the City is working towards this goal is by upgrading and renewing existing parts of the network to improve safety through the Quick Build Program. Upgrades and renewals typically include implementing new line markings, bundling with state-of-good repair road or water projects, or standalone cycling or intersection improvements.

Join us to learn more about the program and the possible application in our local context.
