The town of Bracebridge is considering more bike lanes throughout town, Bracebridge general committee heard on last week.

Councilor Rick Maloney said the town had tried the initiative out with the recent rebuild of Ecclestone Drive and now they are looking at expanding it to all new road upgrades.

He said they were also considering making pedestrian and cyclists crossings more noticeable at area intersections.

Councilor Barb McMurray said the town should consider using different coloured lines, as they do in other municipalities.

Councilor Archie Buie said in some places like Quebec they even have barriers in place to protect cyclists from motorists.
