Learn about the project history and public engagement for the Belgravia Community Traffic Management Plan.

The City partnered with the Belgravia community on a Community Traffic Management process.

The process included:

  • Trial traffic management measures
  • Ongoing feedback and input from road users and community members to determine how the trial measures are performing and whether there is support from the community to install them permanently.

Project History

November 2017: Construction

In 2018, Neighbourhood Reconstruction will continue in Belgravia. Local access will be maintained at all times through staged closures to help minimize the overall impact to residents. The City will distribute construction bulletins prior to work beginning that will include contact information for both the City project manager and contractor.

November 22, 2017: Building Belgravia Public Event

Belgravia residents and property owners were invited to an open house on November 22, 2017 to learn more about various ​roadway and ​park projects happening in and around the neighbourhood and how all the​ Belgravia​ projects fit together​.

Belgravia residents were asked to select from one of four brick colours for the permanent raised crosswalks on Saskatchewan Drive and 76 Avenue. The choices were grey, charcoal, desert buff, and red. Most residents selected red, which will be installed in the permanent raised crosswalks in 2018.

City staff provided 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.

May 17 and June 18, 2017: Survey

Residents are invited to share their thoughts about the trial traffic measures that we have been testing in Belgravia. The feedback received will help determine if the traffic measures are working and if there is community support to install them permanently. Residents can fill out the online survey or fill out a paper survey and send it to us.

May 19, 2016: Belgravia Traffic Committee Meeting

The City met with a group of Belgravia residents to help inform the conversation around traffic concerns and future community engagement. You can view the presentation from the Committee Stakeholder Meeting.

April 2017: Trial Period Ended

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
March 29, 2017: Stakeholder Traffic Committee Meeting

The project team met with the Belgravia Stakeholder Traffic Committee to review feedback received and to gain an understanding of the overall residents response to the trail measures.

November 2016: Speed and Safety Installations
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
October 5, 2016: Trial Measures Presentation

The project team shared, the Concept Plan for temporary traffic management measures to be installed with the community . The trial traffic measures were installed and monitored throughout the trial period. You can view the Presentation and the Presentation Boards from the meeting.

September 6, 2016: Traffic Street Lab

A traffic street lab meeting was held for residents to try out experimental traffic measures and provide feedback. The street lab remained in place until September 16, 2016, to allow residents to test the measures and provide their feedback. You can view the Presentation from the meeting.
