Traffic Study – Left Turn Signal At Pembina And Bairdmore

On January 8th – The Public Works Committee asked that the public works department study and report back in 180 days (June or July).

The Assiniboia Community Committee passed the following motion:

WHEREAS southbound traffic on Pembina Highway is increasing due to the expansion of Waverley West, and an increase in new apartments;

AND WHEREAS northbound Pembina Highway traffic turning west onto Bairdmore Boulevard is becoming increasingly difficult due to an increase in southbound Pembina traffic;

AND WHEREAS there has been a dramatic increase in vehicular traffic turning left on a red light due to limited signal timing;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Standing Policy Committee for Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works be requested to direct the Winnipeg Public Service to conduct a traffic study to determine if a left turn signal for northbound traffic on Pembina turning west onto Bairdmore Boulevard is warranted.
