The proposed changes address two issues at this intersection:

  • Crashes involving cyclists travelling from Yambla Street.
  • Vehicles failing to comply with the stop sign on Yambla Street.

What is the proposed treatment?

We are proposing to:

  • Add green pavement to more clearly mark the bike lane, and widen the bike cut-through from Yambla street.
  • Extend the existing curb to reinforce the stop sign.
  • Install a road hump on the east approach on Ramsden Street to slow traffic.
  • We could install a low height garden bed to help ensure there is clear space, which will improve lines of sight.
