The Harbour Bridge Authority has closed Harbour Passage under the bridge for 2 years during construction on the bridge, blocking the Passage as an active commuter route to the city centre for pedestrians and cyclists from the north end and west side of the city. The City of Saint John has not provided reasonable accommodation for active commuters in response to this closure (review the City's current plan: http://ow.ly/1OCuE).
By signing this petition I am expressing my wish to see Harbour Passage reopened, even if only partially, to allow active commuters through or to have Main Street reduced to 4 lanes with one lane in each direction marked and dedicated for the safe transport of pedestrians and cyclists.
I believe encouraging more pedestrian and bicycle transportation is good for the City of Saint John and this oversight and lack of priority for this option runs counter to best practices and efforts to build a more livable community.
