Addressing speeding through the community
We continue to have concerns raised with noise as well as excessive speed/acceleration related to the South West Ring Road (SWRR) and its connecting roadways. Pedestrian crossings across 90th Avenue remain the greatest safety concern.
We are cautiously optimistic that some of our road safety projects will get approved and implemented. Oakside Gate & 90th Avenue should see pedestrian lights installed this summer. Palliser Drive and 29th Street should also get road calming at the pedestrian crossing. We are also looking at a speed reductions on Palliser Drive from the posted 50km/hr.
We encourage any resident wanting to communicate comments & concerns to call 311 while keeping the OCA informed. We are continuing to communicate with other community associations in District 32, particularly PBPCA and Cedarbrae Community Association to determine their experience/feedback from their residents.
We continue communicating with the City of Calgary Administration and our councillor’s office regarding road safety.
