You're right, there is no right turn on red from Portage east bound to Main southbound. I got confused. What I should have written is they need to stop the buses and cars from turning right on green to simulate pedestrians crossing.

'Unacceptable' access

Winnipegger in wheelchair says broken lifts make intersection more difficult to navigate

Crossing at Portage Avenue and Main Street already requires some roundabout navigating, but for those with mobility issues, the expedition has been particularly challenging the last three weeks.

Two lifts are out of order between the iconic Winnipeg intersection’s underground concourse and the tower at 201 Portage Ave. And for some downtown dwellers, such as Allen Mankewich, who uses a wheelchair, that makes the section of the intersection impassible.

“To me, three weeks is kind of unacceptable,” Mankewich said Tuesday. “The accessibility of (the concourse) isn’t that great. If you want to cross Portage and Main (which has been closed to pedestrians since 1979), you basically have to go underground and take up to four lifts, minimum, to try to get across the street.”

It is somewhat humorous this thread is titled "Portage and Main re-opening 2016" while we are in 2018 and it is still closed.
