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:

  • Northbound bike lane on Vaughan Road from Oakwood Avenue to Northcliffe Boulevard
  • Southbound shared lane on Vaughan Road from Oakwood Avenue to Northcliffe Boulevard
  • Shared lanes on Vaughan Road from Northcliffe Boulevard to the west limit
  • A contraflow bike lane and shared lane on Northcliffe Boulevard from Rogers Road to Vaughan Road

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.

Bike lane: a dedicated part of the roadway for the exclusive use of cyclists. Other road users may not lawfully drive, stand, stop or park in a designated bicycle lane.
Image shows a rider in a contraflow lane
Contra-flow Bike Lane: allows cyclists to travel in two directions on a one-way street (cyclists travel in one direction in the designated bicycle lane and travel in the mixed-use traffic lane or marked cycle lane in the opposite direction).

Shared Lane Markings (Sharrows): road markings used to indicate a shared environment for bicycles and motor vehicles.
