Pine Ridge Drive neighbourhood traffic management review: survey

The Pine Ridge Drive neighbourhood traffic management review is intended to address local resident concerns about traffic speeds and volumes. The review will include looking at possible measures for mitigating traffic concerns, and collecting community feedback on proposed measures.

In 2016, a Neighbourhood traffic management review was initiated on Pine Ridge Drive after the City received concerns from area residents about the speed and volume of traffic in this area.

To begin the review, traffic speed and volume data was collected on Pine Ridge Drive using Automatic Traffic Recorders (ATRs). The ATRs were in place between October 24 and 30, 2016.  Data was collected 24-hours a day over a seven-day period.

The data collected was applied to the City’s neighbourhood traffic management review criteria for a local roadway to determine if Pine Ridge Drive should be considered for further review of neighbourhood traffic management measures.

Pine Ridge Drive met the criteria for a neighbourhood traffic management review.

The following is a summary of the data collected from Pine Ridge Drive:

  85th Percentile Speed* Traffic Volume
