Posted in Construction Notices, Updates, Ward 5

 


This is in response to requests we’ve received, on behalf of area residents, to review concerns regarding vehicular speeds on Ashbourne Drive between Burnhamthorpe Road and Bloor Street West and determine the feasibility of lowering the speed limit from 40 km/h to 30 km/h.

Based on the review of the collision history and vehicle speeds on Ashboume Drive, studies indicate that traffic is operating in a safe and efficient manner. Based on the non-compliance of the Warrants, a 30 km/h speed limit is neither justified nor recommended at this time.
