Around the Ward
As the construction on Abbeyhill winds down, I want to remind residents that the all-way stop controls on Abbeyhill have moved from Carbrooke to Surrey Lane to improve traffic operations. All-way stop controls are used to control the right of way at an intersection. The community to the south of Abbeyhill has brought to my attention that they are facing challenges when entering and exiting their neighbourhood. We expect that the relocation of the all way stop signs will improve traffic operations at Surrey Lane and the Hazeldean mall while not hindering operations at Carbrooke.
I have been on site at the new roundabout in Bridlewood along with City staff and Mayor Watson to monitor and provide support to residents for the first week of school. The roundabout is functioning as planned by eliminating the traffic jam along Stonehaven while remaining the safest option for pedestrians and motorists. To learn more about safely navigating a roundabout, please visit the infrastructure section of my website.
I am happy to be joining the Grassroots Grannies for their Welcome Back luncheon this Friday at the Bushtukah on Hazeldean road. This is a group of Canadian Grandmothers who are part of the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign that seeks to raise awareness and mobilize support in Canada for African grandmothers. This year marks the 3rd annual Ride To Turn The Tide 3-day cycle totalling 260 km. I would like to congratulate each participant on their achievement.
