countdown up

Ward One councillor Brian McHattie shared the news with us that the pedestrian countdown timer which TLC requested for the crossing at Cootes drive and Sanders/McMaster was installed Wednesday (May 21)!

TLC's initial request for the countdown timer was refused by the city; a poll conducted by a TLC volunteer at the site and online found overwhelming support (89.1%) for the timer; this information was presented to the city and the councillor and helped to bring about the installation of the timer.

The timer should increase efficiency for pedestrians and cyclists using the crossing, by providing accurate information about how much time remains to make a crossing.
