Brand New Traffic Lights at Roxborough & Yonge Means Safer Hare Krishnas!

9:19:00 PM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav) , , No comments

For many of the delightful members of our Toronto Hare Krishna community, a drive or stroll down Roxoborough Street is a regular occurrence.

When coming to the temple from the east, it is normal to turn on to Roxborough from Yonge Street.  This would often translate to some white knuckles on the steering wheel when making that left turn - yikes!  Of course, for pedestrians walking to nearby Rosedale station, crossing the street to the east side of Yonge would be a nightmare.

Well, worry no more!

The City of Toronto has installed new traffic lights at Yonge and Roxborough and they look like they will be functional very soon.  This should help everyone be safer when visiting the temple.  Hooray!

And for those of you wondering, yes... this does indeed qualify as newsworthy material for our lovable Toronto Hare Krishna Blog! :o)
