Improved Signage - hope exists for better signs!

The lachine canal ends, unceremoniously, at rue de la Commune ouest just west of the Vieux Port and old montreal. Over the past few years this intersection has received improved signaage. lines painted on the ground with arrows, and ocassionally, street sweeping!

This year sees theinroduction of direction arrows on posts for cyclists. Typical cyclist behaviour is to ignore completely the lines painted on the ground.

This means bikes miss the bike route through the end-of-path intersection, and end up at some staircase to get to the path. Last year they painted lines, this year they installed signs. I hope it helps, because frankly, cycling seems to starve the brain of cyclists, causing complete ignorance.
