Kirkbridge Drive Traffic Calming

Kirkbridge Drive provides a key connector access route to the neighbourhood of South Pointe and the new community of Waverley West. Kirkbridge Drive is a collector street with multiple curves and blind spots. There is a 30 km school zone, but excessive speeding is regularly reported on Kirkbridge Drive.

Therefore, on September 9, 2020, I moved a motion directing the Winnipeg Public Service to conduct a traffic and speed study on Kirkbridge Drive to determine if speed tables are warranted to calm traffic.

On October 15, 2020, the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works received the recommendation of the Assiniboia Community Committee as information and requested that residents follow the new ‘six step process’ to see traffic calming installed on Kirkbridge.
