My office has received numerous communications from residents, pedestrians, cyclists and motorists about the unsafe conditions at the College Street and Gladstone Avenue intersection. In response, I directed City staff to investigate potential solutions to improving safety conditions at this busy intersection. In late April, I held a joint community meeting with staff and residents to explore the potential solutions. Staff proposed adding a traffic light to the intersection as a means of controlling flows in each direction.
As part of your feedback during the meeting, staff are now exploring additional options, including moving the signaled Pedestrian Crossover (PXO) from the College Street and Havelock Street intersection to College Street and Gladstone Avenue intersection and installing a traffic light at College Street and Havelock Street instead.
