Below are a few examples of Traffic Calming measures that are utilized in larger urban areas.
The primary intent of the Traffic Calming Policy is to address concerns which residents, Council and staff have regarding negative impacts of traffic on local neighbourhood streets. Guide lines are also presented for applying traffic calming measures on major roads and collector roads to mitigate the negative impacts of traffic, while still maintaining the ability of these roads to effectively transport goods and people.
