Traffic Study – Pedestrian Crossing On Centre Street Between North Town Road and Park West Drive
On May 7, 2018 – The Assiniboia Community Committee passed the following motion:
WHEREAS many businesses have now moved into the Bridgwater Town Centre, which features parking lots on either side of Centre Street;
AND WHEREAS there is an open pedestrian plaza and walkway entrance on the east and west sides of Centre Street to allow for pedestrian traffic;
AND WHEREAS the Bridgwater Town Centre is designed to allow pedestrian access to flow between the east and west shopping areas to eliminate the need to move vehicles to the opposite side of Centre Street;
AND WHEREAS there is no pedestrian crossing linking the east and west walkway entrances along Centre Street;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Assiniboia Community Committee recommend to the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works that the Winnipeg Public Service be directed to report back on the possibility of creating a signed pedestrian crossing through the median along Centre Street between North Town Road and Park West Drive at the east and west walkway entrances.
I expect the Public Works department will require 6+ months to study and report back. See HERE
