After posting my recent rant about the pedestrian lights on Bank Street, I was informed of a rumour that the problem would soon be fixed and that the pedestrian lights would be fully synced with the traffic lights. So I contacted councillor David Churnushenko’s office and (almost immediately) got a response:
I am pleased to let you know that Staff have just advised our office that the signal changes are now in place and will be active from 7am-9pm Mon-Fri and between 9am-6pm on weekends. This will be monitored and the times may be altered if needed.
I can confirm that this change happened the day after I wrote that post. I’m not saying that post had anything to do with the change, but the post didn’t have anything to do with the change.
We’ll see if this change is sufficient (or if the change needs to be made for all days and times), but it’s nice to see the city address this. And it’s nice to get such a quick response from a councillor’s office.
