MCAC will be looking to see if the level of funding for cycling will be adequate to attain even the 27-year rollout (to 2046!) of 18 km/year of new cycling infrastructure (Scenario C) as approved by Council in June 2018, when the 2018 Cycling Master Plan Update (CMPU) was presented by staff without MCAC endorsement.
