Winter Avenue Traffic Calming: Final Recommendations

The Winter Avenue no-entry restriction via Kings Bridge Road will be removed next week, once permanent speed cushions have been installed as a traffic calming measure on Winter Avenue. 

In 2017 the City implemented a no-entry restriction from King’s Bridge Road on to Winter Avenue to address traffic volume and speed concerns raised by residents in the area. Since then, the city has undertaken a review of traffic flow in the Rennie’s River area and used technical data collected on-site, staff observations, and public feedback, to prepare a report for Council on the impacts of this traffic calming project. The report was presented to Council in May and a final decision was made to lift the no-entry restriction and consider the installation of traffic calming speed cushions on Winter Avenue.

As with all traffic calming projects, residents in the area received a survey to provide feedback on the proposed option. The majority of survey responses supported the installation of speed cushions.
