One of the most common concerns we hear from our members is related to traffic. Not only the increased volume but more importantly with respect to safety.
The IRRA is fighting hard to make our neighbourhood safe for vehicular traffic, cyclists and pedestrians.
Our particular areas of concern currently include: Burnhamthorpe Rd; Royal Avon Cres. and Bloor St W.
On February 16th 2023 Councillor Morley and her staff hosted a community meeting to achieve a better understanding of the community concerns about traffic, specifically along Burnhamthorpe Rd between Dundas St W and Kipling Ave.
Several traffic calming measures were discussed as well as action items to increase safety for both cars, cyclists and pedestrians.
A summary report with dates and timelines for the action items is expected to be provided by Councillor Morley's office in the very near future. Once available it will be posted on this page.
The IRRA will continue to push for a reduction of the speed limits on Burnhamthorpe Rd. and local roads, enhanced Toronto Police Service (TPS) enforcement of speed limits, permanent “Watch Your Speed” signage on Burnhamthorpe Rd., the installation of photo radar (in an appropriate location) and redlight cameras on Burnhamthorpe Rd., together with other safety measures.
In addition, and due to the upcoming developments within our area, the IRRA has requested that the City of Toronto conduct a broader study of traffic within our neighbourhood to look at the road network as a whole.
