Winter Avenue

This pilot project has finished. For information about the outcome and status check out the News Feed - Final Recommendations.

Effective Monday, August 7, 2017 motorists are no longer permitted to enter Winter Avenue from King’s Bridge Road. 'No entry' signs have been installed to indicate the new restriction which is in place throughout the summer and fall.

To access Winter Avenue and Judge Place, all motorists are required to enter Winter Avenue via Portugal Cove Road, with the exception of emergency vehicles and city service vehicles. Winter Avenue itself will remain two way, except for the restriction at King's Bridge Road. Vehicles are permitted to exit Winter Avenue via King’s Bridge Road.

This new restriction is in place to address speeding and volume concerns and is part of a traffic calming study.

UPDATE: City Council has asked that the evaluation of the Winter Avenue pilot be included as part of a broader review of traffic restrictions in this area of town. That review is expected in Spring, 2018.

  • Traffic Calming: Final recommendations

    about 1 month ago

    The Winter Avenue no-entry restriction via Kings Bridge Road will be removed the week of September 10th, once permanent speed cushions have been installed as a traffic calming measure on Winter Avenue.

    In 2017 the City implemented a no-entry restriction from King’s Bridge Road on to Winter Avenue to address traffic volume and speed concerns raised by residents in the area. Since then, the city has undertaken a review of traffic flow in the Rennie’s River area and used technical data collected on-site, staff observations, and public feedback, to prepare a report for Council on the impacts of this traffic calming project. The report was presented to Council in May and a final decision was made to lift the no-entry restriction and consider the installation of traffic calming speed cushions on Winter Avenue.

    As with all traffic calming projects, residents in the area received a survey to provide feedback on the proposed option. The majority of survey responses supported the installation of speed cushions.
