Other solutions that narrow the width of the road may also act to slow traffic. Some, such as bike lanes, can be placed on arterial roadways. Potential interventions include:
|1. Bike lanes||2. Sidewalk|
|A designated space on the road for use by|
people on bicycles. It can be separated from
motor vehicle traffic with paint, posts, or other
|A sidewalk provides dedicated space for
pedestrians to separate them from motor
vehicle traffic. Many local streets in Toronto
do not have sidewalks.
|3. Contra-flow bike lanes||4. Parklets|
|A bike lane added to a one-way street to|
allow cyclists to travel in the opposite direction to motor-vehicle traffic, creating a two-way route for cyclists.
|Parking or travel lanes can be turned into
miniature parks using planters, street
furniture, or other materials.
