If supported by area residents, the City would finish the review and make a recommendation of proposed changes to Council in early fall 2019. Costs for approved changes to Windsor Street would be proposed in the 2020 budget. If approved, implementation could begin later that year.

Background

In 2017, a Traffic Management review was initiated on the section of Windsor Street between Inverness Drive and Balmoral Drive when 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 Windsor Street using Automatic Traffic Recorders (ATRs). The ATRs were in place between November 14th, 2017 and November 21st, 2017. 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 local roadway to determine if Windsor Street between Inverness Drive and Balmoral Drive should be considered for further review of neighbourhood traffic management measures.
