The Town of Oakville developed a survey to ask residents to share their thoughts and experiences with traffic calming measures and lowering speed limits as part of the town’s traffic review.

“The safety of our residents is a top priority for Council,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “Your road safety survey responses will help us in our efforts to keep you and your family safe.”

Oakville residents are asked to complete the survey to assist the town in reviewing the current methods of traffic calming and speed limits on all town roads (not major arterial regional roads such as Dundas Street, Trafalgar and Upper Middle roads and Dorval Drive). The town has eight traffic calming measures including speed cushions and roundabouts that can be implemented across the community. The survey asks residents to choose the measures they think are working well, or not, on their street or in their neighbourhood.

The survey also asks for residents’ opinions on lowering the current 50km/hr. speed limit across the town. The survey results will inform the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) as they have been asking municipalities what they think about lowering the current speed limits in an effort to promote a safer environment for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists alike.

The information you provide in the survey is anonymous, and the postal code request will help staff map areas of concern to residents. The survey results will be shared with Council in a staff report later this year.

The survey is available online at oakville.ca until October 19, 2015. Hard copies are available at Town Hall and your local Oakville Public Library branch or by calling ServiceOakville at 905-845-6601.
