Teams of University of Ottawa engineering students spent Saturday devising low-cost, portable and temporary “pop-up” crosswalks that could some day be used to help Bayshore residents safely cross a busy neighbourhood road.

Competing in a design competition organized by the campus chapter of Engineers Without Borders and Ottawa’s Healthy Transportation Coalition, the five groups were asked to create a pedestrian crossing that could be used on Woodridge Crescent near the Bayshore Transitway station.
