Woodbine Pedestrian Signal Approved!
Now, about where to put it...
This past fall, City Council voted in favour of a community-led plan to install a “mid-block pedestrian traffic signal” on Woodbine Avenue, between Queen Street and Kingston Road.
Now, the City wants our feedback on the best place to put the signal. Two options have been identified: at Norway Avenue; or 40m north of Norway Avenue (closer to Kingston Road).
Walk Across Woodbine, the local resident group responsible for the campaign, is conducting a survey to gather community input.

** Ward 32 Spokes supports Option B!
You will see two options presented in the survey. Ward 32 Spokes supports Option B (at Woodbine and Norway Ave.) for the following reasons:
- Option B places the crosswalk closer to the mid-point between of Kingston Road and Queen making it more useful to pedestrians and cyclists.
- Option B aligns better with existing cycling routes as well as a proposed contra-flow bike lane on Norway Avenue.
- Option B places the crossing in an optimal location for passengers on the 92 Woodbine South bus.
