UofT just became more pedestrian friendly

University of Toronto students won't have to fight with cyclists and motorists anymore thanks to a new pedestrian-only pathway unveiled in front of Convocation Hall.

It's difficult to miss this new polka-dotted walkway, designed by the University's campus and facilities planning division along with Lea Consultants. According to a UofT news bulletin, the pedestrian zone wraps around the historic building to "respect" its circular facade. The dots are also supposed to evoke King's College Circle and Convocation Hall's rounded architecture.

Along with the colour palette, metal posts demarcate the pathway and zebra crosswalks connect those on foot with the surrounding roads.

What do you think of this pedestrian-friendly pathway? Let us know in the comments.
