All in all, we, of course, appreciate the effort and the need but how about setting the bar higher? How about Yokohama as world class cycling city (or walkable city, or livable city, sustainable, green, etc.) This path (this line) is a half-assed, attempt at solving a problem. A far better solution would be to tackle the root cause of the problem and take one (or two!) of the 6 adjoining car lanes away from traffic in order to create a true dedicated cycling lane.
|6 lanes of ugly, high-speed traffic - untouchable|
|Using the lane for parking|
