Question Period and Announcements

..  

50 km/h Speed Signs

Councillor Vagnini asked why certain areas have the speed limit of 50 km/h posted when it is understood throughout the City that this is the speed limit if a speed limit sign is not posted.

Joe Rocca, Traffic and Asset Management Supervisor, stated that typically the signs are installed for one (1) of two (2) reasons. First, when the speed limit is not 50 km/h. The second reason is when an individual comes off a roadway where the speed limit is different than 50 km/h to reinforce what the speed limit is to individuals coming off of a major roadway.

Councillor Vagnini asked why new signs are being installed where nothing in the area has changed.

Tony Cecutti, General Manager of Growth and Infrastructure Services, stated that generally they have a duty to notify drivers of their obligations. Although the residents on the street may find the speed limits very familiar, there is a certain amount of risk for a municipality to ensure they are doing their due diligence. They can look into the area the Councillor is speaking of and review this particular circumstance.

Councillor Vagnini asked if we prioritize the work needing to be done based on need. For example, their are speeding issues on Power and Niemi Drive, would this issue be categorized as more important then a residential area with no speeding problems.

Joe Rocca, Traffic and Asset Management Supervisor, stated they do not have a back log of signs that they are looking to install.

Bonin Street West

Councillor Dutrisac asked for an update on the work being done on Bonin Street West as there has been gravel for several weeks and she would like to be able to advise residents when it will be paved.

Tony Cecutti, General Manager of Growth and Infrastructure Services, stated that they have many kilometres of work to prepare. The surface treatment crew then comes in several weeks later. They cannot use chemicals to suppress the dust as it will effect the quality of the asphalt. He will look into the matter and advise the Councillor on when the work is expected.


At 10:39 a.m. Councillor Cormier departed
