17-year-old pedestrian hit on the strip

Look sharp, Bells Corners pedestrians. Even the sidewalks aren’t always safe, especially on the Robertson Rd. “sidewalks.”

Last Friday a 17-year-old girl was taken to CHEO after being struck by a vehicle in the area of Richmond and Stafford roads, one of the most dangerous spots in Bells Corners. Paramedics treated the girl for a knee injury. She was in stable condition when transported to CHEO.

Wonder if the $1M reconstruction of the Moodie/Robertson intersection will improve things for pedestrians? The pedestrian “islands” will be reduced in size in order to make room for the extra turning lane.

The shaved-down islands may make it a bit safer for cyclists on Robertson to pass through the intersection.
