King and Dundurn must be one of the busiest intersections in the west end. You have motorists pressuring to turn left from Dundurn onto King in order to gain access to the 403; you have motorists wanting to turn right from Dundurn onto King in the opposite direction for the same reason. Then you have timed lights and a wave of traffic barrelling down King also trying to access the 403 or go into Westdale. On top of all of this, you have a major shopping plaza, a HSR and GO bus stop (B-line stop too).

All of this explains why this was one of the first intersections to get red light cameras. It also explains why Dundurn Plaza has been given some attention and densification plans are under way. The next logical step to help faciliate densification plans is to start installing subtle but effective traffic behaviour modification tools.
