CITE-NCS Luncheon: Cross-Town Bikeways

September 21, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

On Wednesday September 21st, we will be receiving a presentation by Zlatko Krstulic of the City of Ottawa on the subject of Cross-Town Bikeways.

Zlatko Krstulic, P.Eng.

As part of the Strategic Transportation Planning unit within the City of Ottawa’s Transportation Services Department, Zlatko’s roles have included development of the 2013 Cycling Plan, and assisting in provincial standards and policy development initiatives related to cycling. Zlatko has been involved in the design and implementation of numerous cycling Infrastructure projects across the City. He is interested in policy issues related to the promotion of Active Transportation as a core aspect of City Planning.

Cross-Town Bikeways – Ottawa’s Minimum Grid

Since 2010, the City of Ottawa has made a major shift towards cycling-supportive policies- including a significant increase in direct and indirect capital investment related to cycling facilities. Key milestones since then include the opening of the City’s first protected bike lanes and major progress on a network of Cross-Town Bikeways.

Cross-Town Bikeways provide continuous cycling connectivity over long distances across the city- they may also be thought of as a ‘minimum grid’ . These facilities will provide a consistent level of comfort for cyclists over their entire length, and are the focus of current cycling planning and investment efforts.

The talk reviews progress towards the goals set in the 2013 Cycling plan, with particular emphasis on the transportation planning implications of Cross-Town Bikeways and the direction of future cycling facility design within a Complete Streets context.
