Re: Safe Pedestrian Crossing at Queen’s Park Crescent East and St. Joseph Street
Dear Councillor Wong-Tam:
The Bay Cloverhill Community Association supports the U of T Graduate Students’ Union (GSU)request for installation of pedestrian crossing facilities at the intersection of St. Joseph Street and Queen’s Park Crescent East.
The BCCA supports a push button crosswalk as suggested by the GSU if there is a way to co-ordinate a safe pedestrian crossing at St Joseph Street with the already existing pedestrian traffic signal that is installed just north of the St. Joseph/Queen’s Park Crescent East intersection in question. Such co-ordination would serve to somewhat reduce the interruption to the flow of vehicular traffic at this intersection.
