Just a quick follow up on this. My wife & I requested that the crossing from Claremount Drive to the stairs connecting to James Street. Here is a portion of the reply from Councillor Whitehead's office: “I have inquired regarding signage from Southam Park directing people to the West 5th Stairs and I am waiting on a response from staff. There was a request some years ago regarding a marked crosswalk however this was discouraged by City Planning as it could be hazardous with traffic coming off of the Claremont access onto the by-pass to West 5th Street this is still considered a major roadway and traffic is travelling like on an expressway.” I wish I knew how to highlight EXPRESSWAY. Don't think we don't think we wouldn't like safer streets the same as the lower city but when this is the response!!!!
