If you happened to be on Main Street in Kindersley yesterday, you may have noticed some activity on the downtown road's intersections.

The installation of pedestrian lights began earlier yesterday morning as part of Kindersley town council and administration's plan to provide a safer environment for pedestrians along one of the busiest roads in the municipality.

The monitors for the crosswalk signals will sit on the traffic posts as town officials expect them to be functioning soon.

The pedestrian signals will be the latest edition to the downtown core after new traffic light posts became operational this past summer.

Council made the decision in October to go with a plan organized by administration to install pedestrian lights after residents voiced concerns for their safety of crossing the road with the new traffic lights.

$39,233.25 has been allocated from the Capital Trust Fund as the total cost for labour, equipment and materials. The project has been contracted to RGM Contracting.
