If you’ve been to Yonge and Dundas in the last few days you may have noticed that a new set of street light signals have been installed that face out into the middle of the intersection. Once the hoods are lifted in late August, these signals will be directing pedestrians across Toronto’s first “scramble” intersection.
We posted about the approval of this type of intersection back in October. Yonge and Bloor and Bay and Bloor are also supposed to be receiving similar treatment.
Below is the famous Tokyo scramble intersection at Shibuya.
