In 2015, Transportation Services staff initiated a review of the traffic speeds and volumes on Kortright Road East between Gordon Street and Sweeney Drive. As part of this review, traffic speed and volume data was collected on Kortright Road using Automatic Traffic Recorders (ATRs). The ATRs were in place between October 26, 2015 and November 1, 2015. Data was collected 24-hours per day over the 7-day count period.
The data collected was applied to the City’s council approved Neighbourhood Traffic Management Review criteria for a local roadway to determine if Kortright Road between Gordon Street and Sweeney Drive should be considered for potential neighbourhood traffic management measures (i.e. traffic calming).
Based on the collected data, Kortright Road meets the criteria established in the policy, and has been identified as a candidate for further review of neighbourhood traffic management measures.
We want to hear from you!
As part of the City’s review, we need to hear from the residents of Kortright Road to determine the level of support for a Neighbourhood Traffic Management review. Please take a moment and provide us with your feedback and comments on whether or not you are in favour of the City commencing a Neighbourhood Traffic Management review on Kortright Road. Responses must be received no later than July 8, 2016. Staff would also appreciate any comments you would like to provide as they relate to traffic issues and traffic calming on Kortright Road.
In order to continue with the Neighbourhood Management Traffic review process, we must receive a response to the survey from at least 60% of all the affected properties on this section of Kortright Road. Further, a minimum of 60% of those respondents must be in favour of a Neighbourhood Traffic Management review in order for the process to continue. If the minimum response rate of 60% of all properties is not met, the process will be stopped and a letter will be sent to all residents advising of the decision.
