There have been some cycling friendly improvements to the intersection of Sterling Rd and Dundas St W, where Jenna Morrison died by being right hooked by a truck. Back in 2012, there was a community meeting about this intersection. Then in 2014, a more bike friendly crossing of Dundas St W was installed. Today I noticed that a bike sensor had been installed on the north side of the intersection for southbound cyclists on Sterling wanting to turn left on Dundas.
Seen from across the intersection, you can see that the bike crossing is meant to be bidirectional, and that the bike crossing lights have been updated to the new design.
Kudos to the city for continuous improvements, although it would be nice to put a splash of green paint for bikes on Sterling Rd who are either waiting for the crossing, or wanting to turn left. We also hope that the city plans to completely fix the intersection of College/Dundas/Lansdowne for cyclists will eventually happen.
On another note, whenever I am in this neck of the woods, I am irresistably drawn to Henderson’s Brewing, where today I note that Henderson’s best is now available in cans.
Also a pleasure to discover spontaneous art along the Railpath.
Heading home, I note that the stairway reconfiguration of the east end of the Wallace Street Bridge is slowly progressing.
Now if we can just get that underground pedestrian connection to Dundas and Bloor done, that would be cool.
