You nailed it - you're not there daily. I respect that you get around a lot and document all these projects extensively - but you don't live there, so your comments about how the sidewalk is just fine are irrelevant. Just this morning there was approx 40-45 people waiting to cross SB at Subway - backed up past the hydro pole and spilling onto the street.You are pushing it on these, as next to none show up in the first place based on my visits. Can't speak to other times since I am not there in the first place. They can work there one at a time going in the same direction, but not both direction for sure.
Why do an east sidewalk before construction starts or finish when it will get damage?? It will be done one way or another after construction is done since the sidewalk is close at this time. Have your say in 18 months from now, other saying it has been rebuilt.
And I'm not saying that the E sidewalk now would be a great idea, I'm saying it was what the developer and City officially agreed on. And it didn't happen. Considering they've ruined the other adjacent sidewalk (Dundas), they've penned in a whole community of people - more than the whole town I grew up in.
So try taking a quick jaunt across the street to Shoppers, or even the Starbucks at St Albans. It's not a workable situation for residents or other people walking through. Not to mention Main & Main have essentially taken over a lane of traffic as well. It is a very difficult time to live in this neighbourhood.
