MUN Area Traffic Study

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 resulting MUN Traffic Study was submitted and adopted by Council in 2017.

The City retained Harbourside Transportation Consultants to study traffic patterns in the area and seek public input through a variety of means.

The consultant examined and made recommendations on the area road network, capacity, pedestrian safety, public transit and other traffic related issues. An important part of the consultant’s work included engaging with the public in numerous ways, such as:

  • 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.

The study area included 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.
