On either side of the Windsor and North intersection, one lane of traffic splits into two,and then, after the intersection, back into one. No signage. No lane markings. Just a big merge-unmerge nightmare.

Remarks: This is dangerous for drivers, but it also for bikers, walkers and everyone else trying to get through Windsor/North in one piece. Why god, why? “There’s not enough traffic to designate a left or right turn lane,” says McEachern. “It optimizes the capacity of the intersection.” And, continues McEachern, there’s about “a dozen or so” of these intersections around the city. Hmm. A dozen or so Municipal Malfuctions, if you ask us.



Who's Responsible?: Kevin McEachern, traffic analyst for HRM West. 490-6133.
