KS – April 27, 2017


 

Week in Review

I would like to thank the Glen Cairn School for inviting me to speak to students this week at their annual Career Day.  I am always impressed at topics brought up and intelligent questions posed by today’s youth.  I look forward to visiting again next year!

 

Traffic Calming around the Ward

The City’s spring Temporary Traffic Calming (TTC) measures are beginning to be installed on a number of local and collector streets around Kanata South. The TTC treatments refers to the installation of flexible delineator signs (flex-stakes) on the centerline or edges of a roadway, typically within school or playground areas. The flex-stakes are used as a low cost tool (compared to other traffic calming alternatives:  speed humps, curb narrowings, etc.) to narrow the effective road width, discourage excessive vehicular speed, and warn drivers of an adjacent school/playground. The Flex stakes have shown an average increase in compliance of 24%.

In addition to the flex stake signage pilot project, we have also implemented speed pavement markings on a number of streets across Kanata South that identify the speed limit on the roadway. This has proven to increase speed compliance by 17%.

A full list of Traffic Calming measures within the ward can be found on my website www.CouncillorAllanHubley.ca.

If you feel that your street would be a good candidate for street calming measures, please e-mail me at Allan.Hubley@Ottawa.ca
