I am pleased to announce that the Transportation Committee recommendation to reduce the speed limit on River Road between Lowen Drive to 110m south of Tewsley Drive to 60 km/h was approved with overwhelming support at the June 14 City Council meeting. This initiative was the result of numerous requests from the surrounding communities and local residents. It is both a safety issue and an issue related to the increase in traffic volume as a result of the opening of the Vimy Memorial Bridge.
The date of implementation for this reduction will be within 6-8 weeks. I look forward to better road safety for Ward 10 residents.
