I’ve been very active with Chief Engineer Charles Senekal and his staff at analyzing the traffic patterns across the city as chair of the Transportation Committee.
In District 6 and across our city I was chiefly responsible in conceiving of traffic calming measures to slow traffic and improve pedestrian safety.
New lane narrowing lines have been painted on Melling, Shalom, Einstein and elsewhere. We’ve lowered the speed limit on Shalom Ave. and ensured hedges are trimmed at corners to improve visibility. We have installed speed cushions, centre-of-the-road crosswalk signs and bollards on Mackle Rd. and on Einstein Ave. Parkhaven Ave. is much safer now in front of the ACC and École Maimonides with better crosswalk markings and signs. The city has smoothed out the raised crosswalks to keep them safe for the students and more comfortable for motorists.
New speed limit signs and lane choking was installed on Wavell Rd. near Melling Ave. A major speed limit adjustment was made on Mackle Road on its entire length. These measures are having a positive impact across District 6 and throughout our city making our streets safer for all.
