New Crosswalk Beacons to be Installed at Rawlins Cross

New beacons are being installed at two crosswalks along Military Road at the intersections of Monkstown Road, and Kings Road. The new beacons are expected to be in place by early next week, with minimal impact to traffic flow during the installation. Please note that installation is weather dependent.

The pedestrian activated crosswalk beacons will help improve crosswalk safety by getting drivers’ attention and improving their yield compliance to pedestrians at the crossing.

Installation of the new crosswalk beacons are in response to feedback collected during public engagement for the Rawlins Cross Traffic Pilot Project. These areas were identified as being of highest concern to pedestrians.

Preparation of the final report for the Rawlins Cross Traffic Pilot Project is ongoing and will be presented to Council in 2020.
