Increased Safety on our Streets

  • Approval of 30km/hr Gateway Speed Zones in the Glebe and Old Ottawa South.
  • Design and approval for a Pedestrian Crossover at Seneca Street and Colonel By Drive.
  • Implementation of a new crosswalk on Lycée Place, connecting Lycée Claudel d’Ottawa to the Lycée Claudel Transitway Station. The community has been asking for this for years, and they brought it to our attention earlier this year. At my office’s request, a new pedestrian crossing was designed and implemented in time for the new school year.  
  • The introduction of two new crossing guards in our ward, one at Bank and Fifth which had been advocated for years with nothing being done.
  • Removing some beg buttons in Old Ottawa South.
  • Improvements to Bronson Avenue, including more traffic calming, reduced speed limits, and improved pedestrian facilities and crosswalk light timing.
  • Supported the implementation of Vision Zero to create safer streets for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers.
  • Addressing "missing links" in the bicycle network in upcoming plans for the redevelopment of the Greenfield-Main-Hawthorne and the Isabella-Chamberlain-Catherine corridors.
  • Current implementation of safe bicycle infrastructure on Heron Road.
