Making Civic Pedestrian Unfriendly

By ChrisinTurner - 21 December 2009 22

Does anyone know who is responsible for the guys with the “stop/slow” signs who are discouraging pedestrians from using the pedestrian crossings in Petrie and Scotts Streets – the ones that connect the separate parts of the Canberra Centre.

There is no construction work going on.

Cars rule OK! So much for encouraging people to do the right thing and walk rather than drive.

What’s Your opinion?

This is a bad spot. A good place for an underground walkway would fix it or pedestrian traffic lights. Yeah I know money doesn’t grow on trees…but it is a solution.

Please please please people, as a pedestrian, or cyclist, NEVER wave cars through… this is how people get injured or even killed.

Before the lights went in on Bunda St I witnessed a few aggressive drivers force their way through the pedestrians whilst bunny-hopping their cars, honking their horns, yelling abuse, giving the finger to all and sundry, revving their engines and even spinning their tires. I think on balance I’d much prefer to wave people like that through BEFORE they boil over.
