If you are coming SOUTH on Spadina Avenue towards Queen's Quay, the lights at Lakeshore Blvd create an unnecessary backlog of cars which is a nightmare in rush hour. There is an advance green to turn left on to Lakeshore Blvd. But if you are going south, the light is RED. This is wrong -- it should be green because the traffic coming NORTH on Spadina cannot turn left in front of you -- there are "No Left Turn" signs and the street is ONE way going east -- Lakeshore Blvd East. So what's the purpose in backing up all the cars all the way up to Bremner when there is absolutely no safety issue here.

there is a big hole at the corner of river street and gerrard street that is fenced off. it says construction underway but evey day i drive by and there is nothing happening. it has reduced traffic to one lane and the line up to get up river to get into gerrard street or down river street further is frustrating. what construction is being done and when will it finish?
Wright Ave At Roncesvalles Ave Toronto, ON
We live on a one way treet which leads away from High Park. As in so many Toronto neighbourhoods, our driveway is narrow, and has obstructed views. Frequently, when backing out onto the road, a cyclist riding the wrong way on our 1-way street will narrowly miss our back bumper. They then cause problems at the next intersection, where drivers are promised e street they are coming from is 1-way, and I ave seen THREE (in the 8 short months we have lived here) very narrow misses of cyclists getting creamed.
We need explicit signage for cyclists about the 1-way, and occasional patrols to hand out tickets. We just don't want to see anyone get hurt!

Bike route 22 has developed significant cracks, that pose a danger to cyclists, between The East Mall and Renforth Dr. in addition, we trust that the construction under the 427 will include ramps to maintain bicycle accessibility.
600 Fleet Street Toronto, Ontario
I turn right ( coming from the north on Bathurst st) into Lake Shore Blvd West from this intersection everyday and EVERYDAY at least 50% of the cars are in the wrong turning lane. There is a small sign there and some guidelines on the pavement but it seems like most people are confused, leading to people honking and almost crashing into one another EVERYDAY. It is very dangerous and frustrating as a driver and I would hate to see something serious happen here one day.

This intersection is a nightmare in all directions affecting Bathurst.
1. Drivers are not aware the Bathurst SB left turn lane to Lakeshore East ends well behind the other two SN lanes - straight and right turn lanes - to allow the Fleet St. streetcar through. It needs to be painted better, more signs and more obvious.
2. It is unclear whether you can turn on to Lakeshore WB from SB Bathurst. It appears not but drivers do causing a bottle neck with the southbound Bathurst traffic. The sign says no turn on red light but the lines force you to turn on to Fleet WB. Clarity! Better signs and paint some lines to force traffic.
3. The lights do not have enough time to allow the long left turn line in the intersection to clear from SB Bathurst to Lakeshore East. Cars get trapped in the intersection all the time. Streetcars turning left from EB Fleet St. turning lane are blocked by cars that don't know where the lane ends or that are trapped by the signal. Chaos. Add some time between lights to allow SB traffic turning left to clear.
4. Cars turning right from WB Lakeshore on to Bathurst always turn into the middle lane instead of the right lane (as it ends In a few hundred meters). This leaves an empty right lane and causes conflict if drivers decide to use it to get ahead. This middle lane is also the proper path for the left turn from EB Fleet St. Cars run into each other here. The middle lane is for Fleet St. through fare. A solid turning lane line needs to be painted forcing traffic from WB Lakeshore to use the right lane and merge further up.
5. Cars turning left from Fleet St. EB need a line to force them into the middle lane on Bathurst. The left lane is for the Fleet St/Bathurst north streetcar. The cars drive into the left lane path then back into the middle lane of Bathurst in one turn. This could cause an accident with said streetcar or a car turning right from Lakeshore WB. Paint some turning lanes!
This intersection is the WORST anywhere and some simple painting could alleviate a lot of traffic and stress. I would add that these turning lanes I refer to need to be painted THROUGH the intersection for the paths noted above for cars AND streetcars.
