In 2011, a Neighbourhood Traffic Management Review was initiated on Woodland Glen Drive between Downey Road and Stone Road after the City received concerns from residents about the speed and volume of traffic in the area.
To begin the review, traffic speed and volume data was collected on Woodland Glen Drive using Automatic Traffic Recorders (ATRs). Data was collected 24-hours per day over a 7 day period. At that time, the vehicle speeds and volume met the criteria set out in the City’s Neighbourhood Traffic Management Review policy. Unfortunately, due to budgetary constraints; staff were not able to proceed with the process.
Subsequently, traffic speed and volume data was collected annually between 2014 and 2016 to monitor the travel patterns along Woodland Glen Drive. The data collected was applied to the City’s Neighbourhood Traffic Management Review criteria for a local roadway to determine if Woodland Glen Drive should be considered for further review of neighbourhood traffic management measures.
The table below is a summary of the data collected:
|Date||Location||AADT*||85th Percentile Speed** (km/h)|
|October 15 to October 21, 2014||Kingswood Gate and Bridlewood Drive||1,907||56|
|May 8 to May 15, 2015||Kingswood Gate and Bridlewood Drive||2,021||55|
|April 18 to April 24, 2016||Kingswood Gate and Bridlewood Drive||2,030||53|
*AADT – Average Annual Daily Traffic
**85th percentile speed – The speed at which 85% of vehicles are travelling at or below
Woodland Glen Drive continues to meets the required criteria 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 Woodland Glen Drive 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 September 16, 2016. Staff would also appreciate any comments you would like to provide as they relate to traffic issues and traffic calming on Woodland Glen Drive.
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 Woodland Glen Drive. 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.
