Neighbourhood Traffic Management

Neighbourhood Traffic Management Policy

Policy Statement

The Engineering Department receives numerous complaints each year from the public regarding speeding, traffic short-cutting through residential neighbourhoods and concerns for safety of more vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists and those with accessibility issues.

In an effort to resolve traffic concerns raised by neighbourhood residents, City staff engage in a consultative manner with area residents to develop a traffic management plan to address their concerns. The plan may incorporate both traditional traffic control techniques such as signs or pavement markings, or physical ‘traffic calming’ measures such as road narrowing and landscaping.

This policy applies to local and 2-lane collector streets only in neighbourhoods of primarily residential land use. The policy and procedures contained within this document do not apply to arterial or 4-lane collector roadways. This will ensure that the primary function of arterial and 4-lane collector roadways in the City of Guelph to move traffic is maintained.
