We asked the Local BIA about their opinion on the new lights , they have provided their view which details an astute view of the intersection that was missed in the original post – that of safety.
I am so very glad to see that stop lights are going up at the very
dangerous intesection of Dundas Street West and High Park Ave. It is a
horrific sound and sad event when I hear from my office the sound of
metal crashing together and then rushing to see if my assistance is
needed. Anyone who has driven north on High Park and turned west onto
Dundas St.knows that it is often very difficult to see oncoming
traffic and this seems to be when most accidents occur. Too many
accidents have happened and the lights will certainly make this a much
safer intersection for cars, pedestrians and of course dogs being
taken on walks! A safe Junction is a great Junction.
