I agree wholeheartedly with this. Before we moved to my current home in Ainslie Wood ten years ago, I lived for a few years on Charlton Ave. near Queen and I always found that area to be, frankly, a death trap. And I am not at all exaggerating. In three years I saw numerous near-accidents as cars ran the stoplight at Queen and more than once I had to flee for my life along the very intersection you mention, at Queen and Markland, when a vehicle came whipping down Queen at well over 100 km/h.

Add the confusion that cars seem to invariably have around that area about where they should be (no doubt exacerbated by the speed of travel) and you have a very dangerous situation. It's one of the most dangerous areas of the city. Whatever engineering can be done--and two-way would be a huge help--needs to be undertaken without delay. Glad to see Councillors McHattie and Farr on top of matters, finally.
