Missed the Leighland traffic calming meeting? Info here

City staff have completed a traffic review on Leighland Road and determined that Leighland, between Helena St. and Brant St., warrants the installation of traffic calming measures. Staff are proposing split speed humps on the road. Two will be installed (black dots on the map below),  with potential for a third (white dot). Before installing the third, staff will collect data for a year to determine whether the initial speed bumps have solved the problems of speeding and cut through traffic. If not, the third speed hump will be installed.

Expected installation is this fall.

Leighland Road Traffic Calming Plan

Written by Marianne Meed Ward

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
