Traffic concerns are common in many communities throughout Calgary; most specifically, the concern for pedestrian and cyclist safety.
Many residents contact the Ward 10 office with these types of concerns and would like action taken to solve them.
Solutions can vary from:
- restricting parking at or near crosswalks
- installing curb-bump-outs in which pedestrians start crossing the road where they are more visible to drivers
- narrowing the roadway to reduce speeds by installing bike lanes
- installing roundabouts and other traffic infrastructure installations.
Finding solutions to traffic concerns in your community comes from the ground up.
The City of Calgary has a process in which concerned residents can get involved with their community association to highlight problem locations and through a traffic committee the community association works with City transportation planners to try to find solutions and then have the locations added to a list for future funded projects.
