Let’s keep our communities safe. As a growing town, our priority is to ensure neighbourhood safety for everyone, including pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers.
We continue to invest in traffic calming and education initiatives to help promote safety on our roads.
Some road safety initiatives include:
- Regular radar patrol in areas known for higher driving speeds.
- Mobile digital traffic signs displayed throughout the community to bring awareness to drivers’ speeds, often used in school zones.
- Targeted traffic operations in partnership with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary.
- A sidewalk program, with a priority in school zone areas. This program supplements $1.2 million spent in 2017 to install pedestrian activated traffic lights.
Is speed or traffic volume in your neighbourhood a concern?
Please familiarize yourself with the Town’s traffic calming policy. Residents may submit a traffic calming request form to the Enforcement Division at the Town Hall, 11 Remembrance Square, during regular business hours or by email to email@example.com. If you would like to speak to the Enforcement Division, please call 834-6500 ext. 501.
Traffic calming measures may include: additional municipal enforcement patrols, signage, pavement markings, flashing radar signs and speed humps. Assessment considerations for traffic calming measures may include factors such as: type of roadway, collision history, daily traffic volume, vehicle speed, emergency route, school zone area, road geometry and non-local traffic.
Children at Play
The Town does not install ‘Children At Play’ signs, as they are not recognized by the Transportation Association of Canada Manual.
