Pedestrian Observation

Albert & Sask Dr.I didn’t make the trek over to Mosaic Stadium last evening to see the Paul McCartney concert. But I was out and about in that corner of downtown around the time the concert was starting. I took the above snap (click to embiggen) facing west on Saskatchewan Drive near Albert St. The sidewalk definitely is a candidate for worst sidewalk in Regina.

Couple the crap sidewalk with two lanes of traffic whizzing past on Sask. Drive with nothing more than a crumbling curb for protection and pedestrians definitely have a harrowing experience on their hands. Try it some time if you like.

  1. I think the intersection of Saskatchewan Drive and Albert Street is the ugliest intersection I have ever seen. I am actually ashamed that visitors to Regina will probably run across it, as it is on a main thoroughfare. There are crumbling sidewalks; non-existent medians; rusty light poles; etc etc. Like Greg did, go and stand there, and have a look. Could not the city designate certain areas as high traffic and ensure that they are pretty for visitors to our city?

  2. There will be a slight delay in repair work as the city had an emergency need to spend $350,000 sending out dishonest robocalls.

  3. Brad: If it’s true they’re fixing that corner that’ll blow my mind. It’s been a disaster for as long as we’ve lived here.
