Neighbourhood Traffic Management Guide Update

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Oshawa invites community members to provide input on a study to update the Neighbourhood Traffic Management Guide (N.T.M.G.). Traffic management is used to address speeding, volume and traffic safety concerns in neighbourhoods.

The updated N.T.M.G. will identify new processes for selecting the most appropriate management tools for residential streets in the City of Oshawa based on best practices from comparable cities and discuss the roles and justifications for using specific tools. The N.T.M.G. does not address traffic concerns on regional roads in Oshawa.

Have Your Say

Community members are invited to provide their feedback online by:

  • Visiting Connect Oshawa to view a virtual presentation and complete an online feedback form.
  • Community members who prefer to complete the feedback form on paper are asked to call Service Oshawa at 905-436-3311 during regular business hours.
  • Participants can also take part in a crowdsourcing map on Connect Oshawa, which will be used to collect location-specific information on traffic calming issues and concerns on City residential streets.

Key items being considered for inclusion in the updated N.T.M.G. are as follows:

  • a new process for reviewing and implementing Traffic Management in residential neighbourhoods;
  • a policy to determine where in the City Traffic Management should be prioritized;
  • best practices for designing safe roadways in new neighbourhoods;
  • a toolbox of traffic calming measures that can be utilized to improve traffic safety; and,
  • a policy for 40 km/h areas, and Community Safety Zones.

Feedback will be received until 4:00 p.m. on Friday, December 11, 2020 and will be considered in the development of preliminary findings to the Community Services Committee. Phase 2 of the Study will present preliminary findings and recommendations to the community for review and comment anticipated in winter/spring 2021.
