Traffic Calming to Access Jinnah Park
Tim Sale Drive is a main transportation corridor in South Pointe. And the community of South Pointe’s primary park, Jinnah Park is located on Tim Sale Drive. The main linear active transportation path for South Pointe also connects into Jinnah Park. And Ecole South Pointe School students and residents access this park via the main linear active transportation path for fitness and lunch breaks.
On June 22, 2020, I moved a motion directing the Winnipeg Public Service to conduct a traffic volume and speed study on Tim Sale drive in front of Jinnah Park to determine if speed tables are warranted to calm traffic at pedestrian access points.
On October 15, 2020, The Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works received the recommendation of the Assiniboia Community Committee as information. I am working with the department to have traffic calming installed on this section of roadway and will provide updates in summer of 2021.
