Consultation has concluded. Please contact Lyndon Kowch, Manager of Operations, if you have questions or comments on pedestrian crossovers in North Perth.

Triton Engineering has completed a review of pedestrian crossovers (PXOs) within Listowel. The purpose of the review was to increase pedestrian mobility and safety and establish consistent designs for crosswalks and crossovers within the community. Twelve locations were studied based on observed traffic volumes, physical site conditions, proximity to other traffic control devices, and system connectivity and pedestrian preferences.

    To whom it may concern, Living in the north end of Listowel, it is very difficult to cross Wallace Ave N to get to any of the businesses on the other side and I assume those living on the east side feel the same. Having small children, this is even more frustrating as we have to walk a number of blocks out of the way (half way to downtown) to use a crossing area or chance it and literally run as fast as we can across such a busy street. There are a few people on my street who work on the other side and often have to wait for a school bus to stop traffic on school mornings before they are able to cross. I am extremely disappointed to see that a crosswalk or crossover has been deemed unnecessary for our area of town. Another point is that Wallace Ave N is extremely busy and I have personally witnessed a large number of cars on different dates drive past the school bus with lights flashing and stop sign out which makes me nervous as my children's bus stop is right at the corner of Wallace and McDonald W, a dangerous place to have children waiting in my opinion, so perhaps some signage "watch for children" "school bus stopping" or something like that would be very much appreciated. Thanks, Camerra Robar

    Thank you for your comments Camerra. The study did look at crossovers both in the Campbell Street and Food Basics plaza areas on Wallace Avenue North. In order to justify crossings under the Ministry of Transportation requirements, there needs to be sufficient pedestrian use. Although these crossings did not meet MTO guidelines, they are a focus of the review and work being done throughout Listowel and will be recounted in 2019 and addressed again. We really appreciate receiving feedback on where crossings are needed from residents to support and guide future work!

    At this point, our first priority is to ensure that the crossings which meet the MTO requirements are reconstructed to the new standards. This work has started with the ordering of lights and other necessary control equipment. North Perth Council's approval will be sought for ongoing upgrades and additional work through the budget process this Fall in anticipation of more upgrades in 2019.
