@Ryan - even with that long advanced green, it often takes drivers 3 or 4 cycles of the light to make that left turn. That's part of my wife's regular commute. The motorists are waiting much longer than pedestrians. My only complaint about Aberdeen and Queen is the highway slit that has no protection for pedestrians, which is pretty well a consistent theme throughout the city (except, as I mentioned above, at Columbia International College).

Once again the silly Hamilton "all one way streets" causes a problem here - every person going west coming down the mountain is shunted onto Aberdeen street because Queen becomes a wrong-way-street at Herkimer. This means the only way to go west is to turn left on Aberdeen, instead of being able to proceed to King... even if Frid street is extended to Longwood, people heading into Ainsliewood/Westdale will still be pushed onto Aberdeen because they can't get to Charlton.
