Warrick Baijius and Cam McMillan of Walking Saskatoon presented the proposal for widening the pedestrian pathway on the Sid Buckwold bridge to the city’s Standing Policy Committee on Transportation meeting on June 12th. The presentation was well received by the councillors and met with many positive comments. The committee voted to send the proposal to administration for a formal report on the costs and engineering details of the project. Walking Saskatoon will continue to keep on advocating for the widening right up until the work starts.
Keep on sending us your pictures of bad and missing sidewalks in the city on Twitter and Instagram (yes, we are on Instagram now!)
Here’s a great one from @dragpokorlo who even got the Airport to respond:
Hey @fly_skyxe this is what welcomes a pedestrian to the yxe airport
