The Speed Reduction Pilot
Six communities lowered speed limits to 40 km/h from May-October 2010, as part of a pilot project to study the impact of lower speed limits on overall safety and quality of life:
- Beverly Heights
- King Edward Park
- Twin Brooks
- Westridge/Wolf Willow
New speed limit signs were posted in these neighbourhoods. The six-month project monitored speeding using speed limit signs, digital display signs, and community programs such as Neighbourhood Pace Cars - before progressing to enforcement.
Council approved speed-zone bylaw amendment and Ottewell, Woodcroft and King Edward Park neighbourhoods have a permanent speed reduction to 40 km/hr.
Beverly Heights, Twin Brooks, and Westridge/Wolf Willow reverted back to 50 km/hr.
