Councillor Rawlson King has released a position paper that outlines his goal towards a continuous, well-connected, and safe active transportation network in Rideau-Rockcliffe Ward for residents.
Please download my paper which identifies improved active transportation opportunities to enhance neighbourhood connectivity and increase mobility for users of all ages and abilities.
Principles that I committed to include implementing proven traffic calming measures primarily on side streets and developing a cycling strategy that includes more bike lanes.
To increase safer transportation, after listening to resident and community association concerns immediately after my election in April 2019, I began to reduce speed limits across the Ward with the introduction of residential gateway zones. The first zones were introduced in the Autumn 2020 to bring down maximum speeds to 40 km/h on residential streets. This process will continue with a goal to reduce speed limits on all applicable residential streets by the end of the 2018-2022 Council Term, with an aim to reduce speeds to 30 km/h where permissible by City-wide standards.
