For Fredericton's most famous roundabout, there is only one pedestrian crossing. It has an island, and is signalled.

We have smaller roundabouts, with less traffic so the pedestrian crossings aren't really a problem.

I suspect when they put a roundabout on Smythe @ Woodstock road, they will have islands and crossing signals for pedestrians at all entrances and exits, since that intersection is high traffic and high pedestrian traffic.
The other thing Fredericton has done well with pedestrians is changing which type of signals we use for crossings. Aside from changing all new crossing to the zebra pattern, the newer crosswalks on major thoroughfares have changes from this overhead design, which is hardly visible in the daylight to this, which has feels like a street-level detail, encouraging drivers not to behave as if they were on a highway while catching their attention with bright yellow LEDs.

Good evening everyone!
Here's my newest video of the Laviolette Bridge, filmed in both directions.
carrying the main route of A55, it is the only fixed link between Québec City and Montréal. Enjoy!

Interesting. Good perspective on the bridge at the end.

Thanks! That puts it in perspective now. I was thinking south but somehow downtown didn't look right.

Yah I had problems with the orientation as well. Most images are from the south. Figured out where the river was then WEM. Plus you can just see Ft Sask in the upper left.
