The City is working to address traffic issues in Belgravia.

Where We Are

The trial period has ended and the online survey is finished. The feedback collected will help us understand what residents think about the trial measures and whether there is support from the community to install them permanently during Neighbourhood Renewal construction in 2017-2018. In addition to feedback from residents, we have also collected traffic data to give us information about driver behavior. 

Key findings from the traffic data:

  • The majority of people are driving at or below 50 km/h
  • The average vehicle speeds are in the range of 36 km/h to 46 km/h
  • The daily number of vehicles range from 450 on 119 Street to 1700 on Saskatchewan Drive, these volumes are considered to be appropriate for these types of roadways

We will continue to monitor and tweak the trial traffic measures to ensure that they are effective in addressing the traffic concerns and that they work for the community.

Building Belgravia Public Event

Belgravia residents and property owners are invited to an open house on November 22, to learn more about various ​roadway and ​park projects happening in and around the neighbourhood.

Learn how all the​ Belgravia​ projects fit together​!

Date: Wednesday November 22, 2017
Time: 5-9pm

City staff will provide information on Keillor Point ​(previously known as End of the World​​ Park) and the Belgravia Community Traffic Management Plan, as well as Neighbourhood Renewal and Engage 106-76. We are also looking for your input on the paving stone color for the raised crosswalks.

This will be a drop-in event with no presentation.

Traffic Management and Trial Measures Map

Work has begun on four major projects in Belgravia: The End of the World Park, Neighbourhood Renewal, Community Traffic Management and Engage 106-76. This one construction project brings together the planning and feedback we received from many Edmontonians on each of the individual projects and we anticipate that it will be complete in Fall 2018. 

About the Project

During public engagement for Belgravia Neighbourhood Renewal and the Engage 106-76 projects, residents, businesses, and other community stakeholders expressed concern that Belgravia is experiencing significant traffic issues.

Public Engagement

We are partnering with the community to understand the neighbourhood traffic challenges and explore potential traffic management solutions through a Community Traffic Management Plan (CTMP). Feedback from residents from Neighbourhood Renewal and the Engage 106-76 projects has provided a starting point for Belgravia traffic management.

Traffic Management Trial Measures

November 2016

Speed Tables/Humps

Speed tables/humps were installed to enhance pedestrian safety and discourage speeding on Saskatchewan Drive. They will be raised crosswalks if permanently constructed. Raised crosswalks are crosswalks constructed 3-4 inches above the elevation of the street.

Locations:

  • Saskatchewan Drive and alley between 78 Avenue and 79 Avenue
  • Saskatchewan Drive and 74 Avenue
  • Saskatchewan Drive and 76 Avenue
  • Saskatchewan Drive and service road south of University Avenue

No Access to University Ave and Directional Closure

In order to reduce shortcutting through the neighbourhood, University Avenue service road, between Saskatchewan Drive and 119 Street, was changed into one-way operation street Westbound.

Curb Extensions

Curb extensions were installed to enhance pedestrian safety by maintaining sightlines and narrowing the crossing distance for pedestrians.

Locations:

  • 74 Avenue and 116 Street
  • 74 Avenue and 118 Street
  • University Avenue and 115 Street
