City Councillors have voted to adopt a 10-year cycling plan for Toronto.
The motion which passed 38-2 on Thursday afternoon, represents a scaled back version of the original proposal put forward by transportation staff in May.
The original had called for new bike lanes along eight major corridors, including Danforth Avenue, Yonge Street and Bloor Street.
However an amendment approved by the public works and infrastructure committee last month scrapped that plan, with the exception of parts of Yonge Street and Bloor Street where studies were already underway.
This was met by resistance from Councillors representing wards along Danforth Avenue in particular, who pointed to strong community support for bike infrastructure along the east end route.
As a result of the backlash, public works chair Jaye Robinson agreed to consider putting Danforth back into the network.
Progress on the plan will be reviewed in 2018.
The total cost of the plan is estimated at $153.5 million over the 10 years with council voting to dedicate $16 million a year to the plans.
