CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

  • I think the mini roundabout on Great Eastern Ave is a bad idea.If there is a problem with speeding why not use speed bumps like the ones on Rotary Drive.

    A: Based on the feedback received, staff have recommended against permanent installation of the mini-roundabout piloted on Great Eastern Avenue.

  • I understand that residents expressed concerns, but a lot of time these concerns are based on anecdotal evidence. What were the results of the traffic study that the City conducted to show the need for a roundabout at this particular intersection? What was the average speed in this area and how did it compare to the posted speed limit and how did it compare to the average speed on other similar roads in the city?

    In 2016 the segment of Great Eastern Ave between Petite Forte and Gil Eannes Dr was found to have 85% of traffic travelling at 60km/hr or less (compared to posted speed of 50km/hr). In our overall scoring system based on the City's traffic calming policy it ranked as the #7 priority.
