Traffic Study – Augusta Drive

January 13, 2022 Update:

The Public Works committee conducted a study on Augusta Drive west of Chancellor Drive to determine if a 30 km/h reduced speed school zone could be installed. Augusta Drive does not meet the requirements set out in the Manitoba School Zone Regulation for the installation of reduced speed school zones, and therefore, no changes are recommended at this time.

The school catchment areas in southwest Winnipeg are broad and wide. Many students west of Waverley Street are driven to Arthur A. Leach school. And many drivers use the shortest route to reach Arthur A. Leach School and travel on Augusta Drive. There is no sidewalk on Augusta Drive for students to use to reach Arthur A. Leach School at Chancellor Drive.

Therefore, on September 2, 2021, I moved a motion directing the Public Service to conduct a traffic study to determine if a 30 km school zone is warranted along Augusta Drive leading to Arthur A Leach School.
