7. Vision Zero and Traffic Calming Initiatives
Prior to being elected, I worked closely with many communities to improve walking and cycling. During this process, I became very familiar with Vision Zero, Sweden's framework for traffic safety. Edmonton recently implemented their Road Safety Strategy incorporating the Vision Zero approach, and other Canadian cities are moving in a similar direction. It is my hope Winnipeg will follow suit, and I'll be working to make it happen.
Currently, I am working with the City's Public Works department to pilot traffic calming methods to improve road safety for all users (vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists) in our ward. Many may be familiar with the successful raised crosswalks on Dalhousie Drive and Bridgland Drive North, and I have NEW UPDATES on both the Aldgate Road and Kilkenny Drive speed table pilot projects.
