A popular trail meets a couple busy streets. There's no good reason why these crossings are missing crosswalks. At the very least there should be ramps at the curb so the trails are more accessible and better for cycling. MAP
Walking up to the intersection isn't realistic. There also isn't a sidewalk.
It doesn't seem like much but this kind of infrastructure on a multi-use trail is pretty rare in the GTA. These bridges were built for the railway that formerly followed this route. We're lucky to be able to use this space now, but imagine a city in which the paths weren't an afterthought.
When Allen Rd was blasted through Yorkdale it wiped out whole neighbourhoods, as well as this portion of the old railway. It's an interesting and shocking story and worth reading up on. For better and mostly for worse, city planners in those days weren't afraid to think big.
It shouldn't be considered a top priority but a big beautiful bridge would relink the trail. Barring that, there should at least be a protected bike lane on the Elm Ridge Dr. bridge.
