MUN Area Traffic Study
The City of St. John’s, Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and Memorial University of Newfoundland have partnered to complete a traffic study for the area surrounding Memorial University.
The City has retained Harbourside Transportation Consultants to study traffic patterns in the area and seek public input through a variety of means.
The consultant will examine and make recommendations on the area road network, capacity, pedestrian safety, public transit and other traffic related issues. An important part of the consultant’s work includes engaging with the public and there are numerous ways that residents have been involved:
- A website that included an interactive map where residents could identify specific areas of concern and make comments.
- An online survey.
- Two public information sessions held at Memorial’s St. John’s campus.
- Residents also had the option of requesting a meeting with the project team or to email the project manager with any questions.
What we heard through the public engagement process is reflected here.
The study area includes Prince Phillip Drive from Thorburn Road to the east entrance to the Confederation Building on Prince Philip Drive, Elizabeth Avenue and Freshwater Road from Kenmount Road to Allandale Road and Allandale Road from the Outer Ring Road to Elizabeth Avenue. It also includes areas and roadways on MUN’s campus.
