Letter: City needs to fix intersection crossings


I watch people in wheelchairs and walkers try to use the Victoria Street and Third/Fourth avenue intersections with great difficulty.

The sidewalks are barely wide enough. The city needs to upgrade these intersections like it did at Lansdowne Street and Third Avenue.

I watch as disabled seniors try to make it from these narrow sidewalks onto the street.

It is worse in the winter months, when icy conditions mean seniors need help getting across the streets.

Last winter, I saw a woman fall as she tried to cross the street with a walker.

The city needs to fix these intersections before someone gets seriously hurt.

Winter is already upon us.
