Speed Study and Traffic Count – Hawstead Road

Residents of Hawstead Rd contacted me in January of 2020 seeking help to see if traffic calming measures could be installed on their street. Hawstead is a ‘cut through’ street and has very high volumes of traffic. On February 4, 2019, I moved a motion to have the Winnipeg Public Service conduct a traffic study to conduct a new speed study and traffic count along Hawstead Road between Bairdmore Boulevard and Kirkbridge Drive, and report back to the Standing Committee with recommendations for traffic calming infrastructure.

On March 3, 2020, the Public Service recommended two options  (see Full report). The residents, myself and a representative of the engineering department are meeting (virtually)  mid-June to discuss the options to determine how to proceed.
