Town of Whitby really did a lot of cycling related improvements in 2015.
Photo is of new Anderson Street bridge over 407, after they requested the bridge be redesigned, to add a cycling lane.
But they also paved the shoulders of Anderson South of 407, down to Taunton road.
The Durham Region Works Department owns and maintains the regional roads and regional highways, while the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) owns and maintains the King's Highways in the region.
The 67 (7 King's Highways, 4 Regional Highways, and 56 Regional Roads) numbered roads provide access to the entirety of the region.
Highway 401 forms the backbone of the region, traveling from the western boundary of the region to the eastern boundary alongside Lake Ontario, and serving over 200,000 vehicles per day.
Several provincially maintained highways existed in the region prior to 1998, when they were transferred to the Regional Municipality of Durham as part of a province-wide downloading of highways.
These routes are now designated as Durham Regional Highways.
The region is not responsible for the bridges over and under Highway 401, Highway 407 and Highway 412 nor the bridges over and under Highway 35/115 or, all of which are maintained by the MTO.The region is also exempt from the construction and maintenance of bridges crossed by railway, but not from bridges which separate road and rail crossings.We received a standard email reply acknowledging receipt of the email but have not received any other response to the concerns that were raised.We would respectfully request a response to our original letter as construction is underway and if upgrades are to be incorporated time is of the essence.Yours truly, Bruce Mac Donald For the Durham Region Cycling Coalition CC: Christine Elliott, MPPGranville Anderson, MPP Eleanor Mc Mahon, MPP Burlington Jennifer French, MPPTracy Mac Charles.The numbered roads in the Regional Municipality of Durham account for about 832 kilometres (517 mi) of the county road system in the Canadian province of Ontario.
