City of Toronto – Signs & Markings

“The City of Toronto is active in the implementation of measures to increase pedestrian safety and maintain mobility. Throughout the years it has tried and tested several varying signs and markings applications, one of which was the inlaid XD markings. Since their installation in 2008, the markings have remained very visible, thereby maintaining positive guidance for vehicle and pedestrian traffic.”

Allen Pinkerton, Manager – Signs and Pavement Markings, City of Toronto

York Region

“Traffic Patterns XD is an attractive and practical product which has been used to visually enhance crosswalks on several successful projects in York Region. The true test of the product is in its durability which has endured high speed, heavy truck traffic and snow plow operations, including salting and sanding. Durable, long lasting products have become a standard for enhanced crosswalks in York Region’s urban centers.”

Working With Designers 

“When Terraplan is asked to design parking lots, roadways and pedestrian pathways we have found that HUB Surface Systems is often the ideal company for us to work with. Their responsiveness, and commitment to collegiality and problem solving has allowed us to create intelligent solutions that meet  our clients needs.”

Kitchener Waterloo Region

“Per our project agreement, we needed to install “enhanced” crosswalk features at specific crossings in the core business areas of Waterloo and Kitchener”……”Brick and cobble stone crosswalks were also not acceptable material alternatives due to their long term maintenance and durability, potential for unevenness due to temperature fluctuations, vehicular traffic, freeze thaw and de-icing chemical use among other concerns.

“Our concern with a concrete crosswalk solution was that over time, differential settlement between the concrete crosswalk and roadway asphalt could still create issues with the interface between the two. Cost and scheduling were also big considerations as concrete crosswalks meant the roadway had to be remain closed for several days to allow for the concrete to cure at each location. Given the experiences we had with TPXD on another project (VIVA), we pursued using it on our project. Working with the Region and both the City of Waterloo and the City of Kitchener, we were able to demonstrate the longevity of the TPXD applications.”

” During the installation process, we were able to complete the crosswalks with night time closures only, without having to remove portions of the roadway that needed to remain open for public use. The visual appeal of these crosswalks were also commented on by many.”
