East Lakeview Road Pedestrian Safety

East Lakeview Road was originally designed as a rural road with ditches and wasn’t meant to have sidewalks. As the community has grown, concerns about pedestrian safety on this road have also grown.

We’d like to invite your thoughts on how we can improve pedestrian safety in your neighbourhood.

    Reducing the speed limit is one way to improve safety. What are your thoughts on this option?

    Here are a few suggestions for your consideration: 
    • Implementing a speed limit reduction can have an immediate impact.
    • This is one of the easiest options to change immediately and is possible within the budget.
    • Challenges include enforcement on the new speed limit.
    • Local support is needed for this initiative to be successful.
    • Speeds may not be as much of a concern following the completion of development in Kinniburgh South.

    There are a some options for traffic calming measures to be added. 

    Here are a few suggestions for your consideration:

    • Speed display boards (illuminated digital signs that indicate your speed)
    • Speed bumps
    • Changing the road to a one-way street and having a bike/pedestrian lane
    • Bump outs (concrete barriers that narrow the road in certain areas)
    • Implementing a parking ban on the road
    • Alternating east & west side garbage pickup
    • Add a flashing pedestrian crossing at Colton Court

    What are your other ideas to increase safety in this area? Suggestions for your consideration are below.

    Making major adjustments to this rural road will be expensive and complicated but are not impossible.

    Here are a few considerations for you: 
    • Putting sidewalks on both sides of the road will require storm water to be handled with piping (rather than ditches) which requires storm mains to be installed, the road to be dug up and considerable cost and disruption to residents along the road.
    • Widening the road would have the similar cost and work as putting in sidewalks and require even more asphalt and construction impact on the neighbourhood.
    • Making changes of this scope would cost millions of...

    • Widening the road would have the similar cost and work as putting in sidewalks and require even more asphalt and construction impact on the neighbourhood.
    • Making changes of this scope would cost millions of dollars.
    • Making changes like this are a deviation from the planned rural feel of the community
    • Sources of payments for these projects may come through a local improvement bylaw for the residents impacted or would have to be included in a general City budget. 

    Please provide your thoughts on some of the options listed.
