OC Transpo has recently received feedback about a safety concern for buses at the intersection of Leikin and Bill Leathem. The Concern is that buses on route 278 are unable to serve the existing northbound stop just before Bill Leathem and still make the left turn to continue west on Bill Leathem. As you can see in the image below, the bus stop is very close to the intersection.
As a result of this concern, the bus stop will be moved approximately 50m further south to the next street light pole. This would allow sufficient space for buses to make movement into the left turn lane safely. This change will be effective April 22, 2018.
