Cycling is one of the fastest-growing transportation modes in Toronto. The City is working to make travel by bike safer and more inviting.

The City of Toronto is proposing to install cycling infrastructure in the Oakwood neighbourhood. The proposed cycling routes include:

  • A contra-flow bike lane and shared lane on Glenholme Avenue from Vaughan Road to Rosemount Avenue
  • Shared lanes on Rosemount Avenue/Benson Avenue from Dufferin Street to Winona Drive
  • Shared lanes on Winona Drive and Greenlaw Avenue

A contra-flow bike lane on Vaughan Road from Oakwood Avenue to Northcliffe Boulevard was approved by City Council in 2019 and will be installed in 2020.

Cancelled: Public Drop-In Event #3

Tonight’s meeting has been cancelled. If you have not already signed up to receive project updates, please contact us to receive notification with the re-scheduled date and time for this meeting.

After receiving comments on the route options, and a review of steepness of the road, snow removal and connections to existing cycling routes, it is proposed to install a contra-flow bike lane on Glenholme Avenue from Vaughan Road to Rosemount Avenue.

You are invited to review information panels and fill out the feedback form.

Ten Year Cycling Network Plan

On June 9, 2016, Toronto City Council approved the Ten Year Cycling Network Plan for connecting, growing, and renewing Toronto’s Cycling Network. The Cycling Network Plan outlines investments in cycling infrastructure from 2016 to 2025, and builds on the City’s existing network of cycling routes to:

  • Connect gaps in the cycling network
  • Grow the cycling network into new parts of the city
  • Improve the quality of existing cycling network routes

Public consultation identified safety and connectivity as the highest priorities by stakeholders and the general public.

Project Overview

The new cycling infrastructure is designed to provide a dedicated space for cyclists, improving safety and comfort for all road users. The bike lanes will expand the local cycling network by providing improved connections to the existing bike lane on Rogers Road and the future cycle tracks on Eglinton Avenue.
