And car companies, sometimes by design but more often by genuine lack of information, might seem more eager to support park facilities - that keep bikes off the road - than to support a fully multi-modal road and transportation system.
So with your support for the bike park, consider letting SATA know that Marine Drive would be an expressway with zooming cars and will make it more difficult for kids under their own power to enjoy the park safely. Wallace is already a formidable barrier, and Marine Drive just adds to it. The Third Bridge and its associated ramp system will harm connectivity to the park and will make it less beautiful.
Equally, consider thanking Withnell for their support of the bike park and then asking for their full participation in the Commercial Vista Corridor Study, which may kick-off the public phase in December. They have a facility right on Commercial here in the study area, and will probably have an opinion about any changes.
