First International Better Block!

First International Better Block!

Bike lanes, bump outs, and cross walks appeared on the roads, artfully created by the Environment Hamilton interns and volunteers using corn starch and flour paint. This Better Block demonstrated the complete streets that allows for all forms of transportation and is the first international Better Block.

    Hi there!
    Thanks for posting this video and writing the blurb – we had a fantastic time creating the Better Blocks and could not have done it without volunteers, Open Streets Hamilton, North End Neighbours (neighbourhood) Association – donations by a painting company that lent us the supplies, the list goes on!
    A huge thank you to you all for being the ones to inspire us – I think it made an impact and got people thinking about what a Complete Streets looks like.
    All the best,
    Environment Hamilton

    Great idea! I just moved from Hamilton (Dundas actually) to the Netherlands two weeks ago. The motto in my new home town is “No bike, no life”. Bikes are everywhere, it’s amazing. Good luck with all the great work you are doing back “home”.
