Do you think Greater Sudbury is becoming more friendly to pedestrians?

    I agree we have made some small progress but have a long way to go. Rainbow Routes has done a great job building trails; however, getting to them is difficult and certainly not safe. What we need now are safe connections to the trails that to through many beautifuly areas of this city so more people, both walkers and cyclists, can take advantage of them.

    What we need to cross these busy intersections are pedestrian overpasses that are wheelchair friendly. This way the elderly, disabled, pregnant etc, can take their time crossing without fretting about getting injured. Cars can pass under without worrying about pedestrians and traffic will flow better with less traffic lights. We have four major roads in this city, Lasalle, Kingsway, Notre Dame and Barrydowne. These roads are constantly congested and would find more relief with fewer red lights. It's very frustrating as a driver to be stopping every couple of blocks for a red light. It's very frustrating (and dangerous) for pedestrians to try and cross when impatient drivers are in a hurry.
    They should be put in the areas used most. Such as Walmart on Lasalle, near the Jarrett Centre/Leons area on Notre Dame and McDonald's on the Kingsway and the mall on Barrydowne.
