Slow Streets provide opportunities for walking, cycling and rolling and make it easier for people to exercise and access businesses in their neighbourhoods.

Slow Streets have been planned on residential/local streets based on several factors, including traffic volumes, signalized crossings at busier streets, equity and access to green space, nearby parks, and community amenities.

  • In Spring 2020, we installed about 30 km of Slow Streets with barriers and signs. By end of summer, we will implement additional Slow Street connections.
  • We're asking for feedback about your experiences on Slow Streets.

Next steps

  • Using input from residents and businesses, we’ll make adjustments at key locations this fall.
  • Your input will help us make adjustments and inform longer-term opportunities for these routes.
  • We will continue to monitor Slow Streets and anticipate that many routes will be in place through 2021.
  • We're asking for feedback about your experiences on Slow Streets. Your input will help us make adjustments and inform longer-term opportunities for these routes. Your responses will be kept confidential.

  • This fall, we are implementing temporary traffic calming measures on selected Slow Streets. Traffic calming measures help reduce motor vehicle volumes and make these routes more comfortable for walking, cycling and rolling.

    Review the Supplemental Design Guide to learn more about each traffic calming measure and the rationale behind the transportation upgrade. 

    Once the measures are installed, we will be asking the public to share their feedback about how these changes are working. We will monitor these traffic calming measures by reviewing public feedback, collecting data and making adjustments as needed.
