In 2013, a Neighbourhood Traffic Management Review was initiated on Grange Street between Stevenson Street and Victoria 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 Grange Street using Automatic Traffic Recorders (ATRs). The ATRs were in place between November 9th, 2013 and November 15th, 2013. Data was collected 24-hours per day over a 7 day period.
The data collected was applied to the City’s Neighbourhood Traffic Management Review criteria for a collector roadway to determine if Grange Street between Stevenson Street and Victoria Road should be considered for further review of neighbourhood traffic management measures.
The following is a summary of the data collected:
Grange Street between William Street and Victoria Road
|85th Percentile Speed*||Traffic Volume|
|Automatic Traffic Recorder Data||61 km/h||2,371 vehicles per day|
|Criteria Required to Consider Further Review||Must be greater than or equal to 60 km/h||Traffic volume must be greater than 2,000 vehicles per day|
|Meets Neighbourhood Traffic Review Criteria (Yes/No)||Yes||Yes|
*85th percentile speed – The speed at which 85% of vehicles are travelling at or below
Grange Street meets the criteria and has been identified as a candidate for further review of neighbourhood traffic management measures.

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 Grange Street. 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.
