Queensdale Avenue between Upper Wellington and Upper Wentworth was just repainted to have two bike lanes, one lane of traffic each direction, and parking on the north side of the street.

It's quite a change from the former one lane of traffic in each direction and parking on both sides of the street.

What bothers me though is the pedestrian crossings. There are two stop signs along that stretch of Queensdale, and neither has any crosswalk markings at all. One is across from inch park, the other is at East 13th near two bus stops.

They used to have painted crosswalks (two simple white lines) at both of these intersections, but let them fade a number of years ago and never repainted them. Since people often pretend not to see the stop signs, I wouldn't mind having markings on the road to serve as a further visual reminder that these intersections are different than the rest.
