Pedestrian safety improvement at Ajax intersection

The Region of Durham will be implementing leading pedestrian intervals at the intersection of Bayly Street and Kitney Drive in the Town of Ajax.

  • When: August 3. Unfavourable weather conditions may influence the activation date.
  • Where: Intersection of Bayly Street and Kitney Drive in Ajax.
  • Why: The leading pedestrian intervals will improve pedestrian safety by allowing pedestrians to enter the intersection five seconds before vehicles receive a green indication signal. This enhancement allows pedestrians to have a greater presence and advance visibility in the crosswalk, reinforcing their right-of-way over vehicles making left or right turns.

Minor traffic disruptions are anticipated while crews implement the new safety improvements. Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians are reminded to exercise additional caution for everyone’s safety, said the region in a statement.
