It's something as a motorist you can't miss and that's exactly the increased safety, management at The Boardwalk wants to see come out of this.
A pair of 3D pedestrian crosswalks were installed on the south side of the Medical Centre in Waterloo over the Victoria Day long weekend.
When people are walking across, from a driver's perspective, it will appear as though the pedestrians are walking across floating white bars.
The white stripes appear to be floating due to the shadow-like black paint, which was applied to create such a perspective.
The Boardwalk calls them the first traffic-calming 3D crosswalks for patients in this country.
It's estimated over 2,000 people visit the Medical Centre each day.
The management team says they wanted to find a solution to slow down vehicles, without adding more signs.
"Typically, these [crosswalks] are templated pavement stripes, but we wanted to implement something unique with the patient in mind," said Cynthia Voisin, Project Coordinator of the Medical Centre at The Boardwalk.
The Boardwalk aims to promote a pedestrian-friendly atmosphere in its planning.
