This morning the CBC did a follow up interview on the problem with Bronson. They interviewed Dan Burden, who is a leading proponent of road diets. I have used his materials in suggesting to the city that Bronson needs to be put on a diet, and their answer, without any justification, is always … “no”.
You can now listen to this interview at http://www.ericdarwin.ca/downloads/CBC_Bronson_Road_Diet.mp3
He points out that some cities are already up to their thirty-third road being put on a “diet” and dear old Ottawa won’t even consider putting one road on a diet. Sigh.
