Shell Canada Donation for PXO, Transit Shelter
By City Staff
Shell Canada has provided $40,000 in social investment funding to the City of Sarnia for a new Centennial Park pedestrian crossover and transit shelter.
The new transit shelter is equipped with solar lighting and is fully accessible.
The new crossover is located on Front Street, between Maxwell Street and Nelson Street. The crossover will provide pedestrians a safe access point to the newly remediated Centennial Park.
A pedestrian crossover, commonly referred to as a PXO, is a distinct combination of pavement markings and signs that provides pedestrians with a protected crossing opportunity. Under the Highway Traffic Act the driver of a vehicle approaching the crossover must stop before entering the crossover if a pedestrian is present within crosswalk or if a pedestrian is signaling to enter the crosswalk. Pedestrians are required to ensure all vehicles are stopped prior to entering the crosswalk.
The new pedestrian crossover is the first of its kind in the City of Sarnia. An education campaign was recently launched between the City of Sarnia and Lambton Safe Roads Committee to help inform residents about how to use a pedestrian crossover as a pedestrian, cyclist, and driver.
“The City of Sarnia is grateful to Shell Canada for their generous contribution towards improving safety and providing shelter for transit users,” explains Margaret Misek-Evans, Chief Administrative Officer, City of Sarnia.
“At Shell, we believe that supporting the community is an integral part of how we operate our business. We are pleased to help make the reopening of Centennial Park a success,” said Shell External Relations Manager Randy Provencal.
