Queen'S Park Toronto, Ontario
I walk through Queen's Park every day to work. The King Edward VII statue in Queen's Park has been under construction since the end of May. The sign posted nearby states the construction was due to end June 28th. It is nearly September and it's still sitting unfinished.
Construction crews have only been at the site for maybe 7 days, off and on through June (more off than on). No construction has taken place over the last month and a half.
The statue is surrounded by fencing, old wood, piles of stone, garbage and weeds. There is a porta-john that's been sitting there the whole time too. It makes the whole park look disgusting.
I'm wondering why no construction has been done for weeks, and why it's incomplete, and nearly two months overdue?· Reported by Steve B · Flag Flagged
Renforth & Toledo etobicoko, ONthere is a middle school on toledo & renforth, high traffic area, but noone seems to care (school main office and teachers, parents, drivers, neighbours, city staff and police):
- renforth is a heaven for speeders (the road is imposible to cross at the times)
- there is no other way for children or adults to cross renforth in this area other than jaywalking:
- no crossing guard
- no pedestrian crossing or crosswalk
- no speed limit on renforth
- no 'school nearby' traffic sign
- not even a simle 'stop' sign
1. why an accident must happen for someone to wake up?
2. why nobody cares?
3. who is responbile for this negligence?· Reported by shocking negligence - kids endangered · Flag Flagged
Front & Spadina Toronto, ONThe intersection at Front and Spadina is a constant traffic jam with street car tracks being ripped up every couple of years and now, there's construction of a new condo building on the north west corner. However, I've always been annoyed by the no right turn on a red when driving east on Front wanting to turn south onto Spadina for access to the Gardiner. The light for eastbound traffic is only green for 17 seconds which is never enough, especially when pedestrians disobey the "cross on the other side of the street" sign.
When there is an advanced green arrow for northbound Spadina traffic to turn west onto Front, why can't we have a green arrow to allow more cars to turn right onto Spadina southbound at the same time? I try to avoid this intersection whenever possible, but the access to the Gardiner west of the Ex is always also a total mess. Please help!· Reported by Norbert K · Flag Flagged
Lawrence Avenue E. And Crockford Blvd. Toronto, OntarioThe city has just installed a HUGE sign at Lawrence Ave. & Crockford Blvd. that says Crockford Blvd but it is made of rusty metal! I wonder how much money they have spent on this and why. I have also seen sculptures of trees installed last year at the entrance to the building at Jack Goodlad Park (Kennedy Rd. and Ranstone Dr). These sculptures are also made of rusty metal. The rust has leeched onto the sidewalk and looks awful. This is not the only Scarborough park I have seen these at. The rusty statues are not even attractive nor the huge sign at Crockford Blvd. What are they thinking?? I'd appreciate your input. Thanks!· Reported by Anonymous · Flag Flagged
55 Brownlow Avenue Toronto, OntarioA sign of something more serious? There is a water hole that is slowly eroding a hole in the sidewalk adjacent to the SW corner of my building's property (in front of sign post). About 10-20 cm in diameter.
34 King St E Toronto, ON M5C, CanadaThis stop has been closed for several months but the shelter is still there and people do not notice the small sign inside the shelter and often are confused when the streetcars do not stop.
16 Windham Drive Toronto, OntarioAn extra arrow is added to this no stopping sign with permanent marker making this entire street seem like there is no stopping. You can tell when you take a closer look at the photo.
3308 Yonge Street Toronto, Ontario
When a pedestrian arrives at this intersection intending to cross (either direction, either corner) and the traffic signal is already green in their intended direction, the walk signal will be the red hand (i.e. don't walk) unless someone has already pressed the walk button.
This creates a confusing situation where turning traffic from Fairlawn onto Yonge (both directions) feels that they are entitled to proceed while pedestrians are held back until the next cycle (provided they press the walk button before then). Some pedestrians begin to cross regardless of the pedestrian signal, and several close calls have already occurred.
Ideally these two should be synchronized, with the cross walk request button shortening the cycle time.
