Beddington Heights community traffic project

Background

The Beddington Heights Community Association submitted a request for a community traffic project to The City, as residents told them about speeding and pedestrian safety concerns along Berkley Drive N.W.

The City of Calgary studied the area and collected data regarding the speed of vehicles and pedestrian safety. Based on this study, the following intersections have been identified as locations that can be improved through changes to the design of the intersection:

  • Berkley Drive and Berwick Drive N.W.;
  • Berkley Drive and Berwick Road N.W.;
  • Berkley Drive between Hunterview Drive and Bermondsey Rise N.W.; and
  • Berkley Drive and Berkley Close N.W.

The design of these intersections will be changed by installing traffic calming curbs in the shape of curb extensions. This will narrow the roadway so that it shortens the time that people spend walking across the street, and encourage people driving to travel at safer speeds.

Construction timeline – August 2017

The week of August 28, 2017 the traffic calming curbs will be installed at all four locations. Once the traffic calming curbs are in place, road signs will be relocated and new road markings will be painted.

It is anticipated that construction will take approximately three days per location. All construction activities are weather dependent and dates may change as a result.

Next steps

After the temporary traffic calming curbs have been installed and residents have had time to adjust to them, The City will evaluate their effectiveness.

The results of the evaluation will be shared with the community, and an opportunity to share your feedback on the project will be provided.

Based on the results of the evaluation and public engagement, The City will determine whether any adjustments are required.
