    Why are channelled, right turn lanes being removed? What makes them dangerous? I am particularly interested in the intersection of Westminster Highway and Number 2 Road.

    Thank you for your question. We replied to a similar question on the Transportation project page and are happy to share the information with you here as well.

    Channelized islands are found to be a significant contributor to collisions at intersections in the city.  The proposed projects will improve overall intersection traffic safety by reducing the speed of right-turning vehicles, improving sightlines of pedestrians and cyclists, and increasing the amount of road space for pedestrians/cyclists.  This enhances the road environment for more sustainable modes of travel including walking and cycling, which is aligned with the City's vision and plans.

    With respect to No. 2 Road-Westminster Highway, the project is in the design phase to determine the exact scope of removal/modification of the island.  The description of the project has been revised accordingly.
