Urban Infrastructure

TriTAG believes our cities should be built for people, so that one need not rely on a car to work, shop, or play. Urban infrastructure should support walking, cycling, and transit use.

Many roads in the Waterloo Region lack sidewalks and bike lanes. Even where such infrastructure exists, roads are often built in ways that make pedestrians and cyclists feel unwelcome. TriTAG supports a complete street policy that encourages development of streets that welcome pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users of all ages and abilities. Intersections, being a point of interaction between pedestrians, cyclists and motorists, need to both be and feel safe for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. In addition, we support improvements and additions to off-road routes to augment the road network for cyclists and pedestrians.
