Oil capital working towards cycle track network

Calgary, the capital of Alberta’s oil industry (the provincial capital is further north in Edmonton), is aiming to build a grid of cycle tracks (separated bike facilities), through key downtown corridors. Local Councillor Evan Woolley likens the project to the pivotal development of light rail serving the city’s busy commuters. Cycle tracks are becoming more and more a choice of planners and designers focused on better facilities for cyclists in congested downtown grids.
