The pedestrian signals on the western side of the Queen/Kent intersection -- the ones that signal pedestrian traffic from City Hall to Scotia McLeod -- should allow pedestrian traffic as soon as the left-turn signal fires for traffic turning from Queen onto Kent.
As it stands the pedestrian signals don't turn until the left-turn interval is over, which makes no sense because traffic is not allowed to turn right onto the one-way Kent Street, so there's no conflict.

Posted by Peter Rukavina, Tuesday, January 12th, 2010The response from the City of Charlottetown is as follows: "It is possible to change only when the controller is upgraded. Issue is recognized and on a list of improvements. At this point can't yet state when funds for new controllers will be acquired and actioned."
Please note that updates are not sent to city officials.
