Study reveals few speeders on Westridge Drive
After receiving a letter from Stefanie Hendrickson voicing concerns about traffic speed and safety on Westridge Drive and Foster Way, the city installed a speed reader to collect data.
Data was gathered on Foster Way – March 21, 2015 to April 21, 2015 and Westridge Drive – May 1, 2015 to June 1, 2015.
The data collected showed that less than three per cent of traffic on Foster Way and less than eight per cent of traffic on Westridge Drive was travelling faster than 51 km/hr.
“It is difficult to warrant any traffic calming infrastructure at this time,” noted Gary Muraca, director of municipal services in a report to council. “The speed study data was provided to the local RCMP office for their comments and they echoed that speed in this area was not something that would require imminent attention. They will do some enforcement as time allows.”
