This picture is nuts. Why did they put in contra-flow traffic lights the rest of the route, then omit them when the route ends and you are forced across the street?

This GO station "obstacle" has really mangled this project. Worst bike lane terminus ever. It seems like it'd be less trouble to just finish the bike lanes past the GO station.

As for protecting the green wave (past the train station no less) ... picture Mr Spock with one eyebrow raised in confusion at the illogic ... that describes my reaction as well.

They've literally designed this to support the worst behaviors of everyone. Cars are acknowledged as running red lights if it interrupts the green wave. Pedestrians ignore lights and cross on a gap if the signal doesn't work. Bikes will just veer across all lanes the way it's setup now.

Very bizarre set of half-finished features at Hunter+McNab, for sure.
