A traffic-diversion island on a George Street crosswalk does more to divert pedestrians

Many gables without green


There are contractors building houses in South Surrey of late who have definitely read Anne of Green Gables one time too many.


A monolith was installed on George Street several months ago, apparently in an effort to discourage traffic from turning left onto 16 Avenue.

I still see traffic making left turns with little problem.

A greater problem exists for pedestrian traffic crossing George Street at that point, because the crosswalk portion is elevated a couple of inches, making it difficult for the handicapped using canes, walkers or scooters.

The crosswalk part should be left at street level to overcome the problem, especially during the winter snow and ice periods.

Right-turn-only signs/arrows should take care of the traffic, especially if one is installed in the center of 16 Avenue along with a couple of poles, making a left turn impossible.
