What changes has the city made to the intersection at Pacific and Burrard to make it safer?

Dear blog collaborators, especially those who bike/drive Burrard more regularly than I.

Someone sent me this question. Can you answer it?

I had a bike crash July 20, 2012 at Burrard and Pacific. I was knocked out and taken to SPH.  What has the city done since your May 28th piece mentioned COV was planning on making it harder for cars to turn right there?

…..”cars, in spite of signs telling them they couldn’t, were still trying to turn right from Burrard onto Pacific. The city is making an adjustment to that corner to make it much harder for a car to turn right, which should bring the crash rate back down.”
