Many cities around the world use scrambles to provide safe and accessible crossings in pedestrian-heavy areas. 

Pedestrian scrambles enhance walkability, which encourages more people to choose travel options that are active, healthy and environmentally sustainable and increases foot traffic which can support local business.

Pedestrian scrambles are an effective tool for increasing safety and livability on our streets.

How To Use Pedestrian Scrambles 

At a pedestrian scramble, all vehicles stop, allowing pedestrians to cross the intersection in every direction, including diagonally, at the same time. 

On Your Feet

  • Cross on the 'Walk' signal in any direction, including diagonally
  • Wait while vehicles are moving

In Your Vehicle 

  • Turn right or left on the 'Green' light
  • Wait while pedestrians are moving
Edmonton's goal is Vision Zero: zero traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries by 2032.
