Traffic Calming Measures on Rosehill – Feedback Requested

Rosehill-RMA-2018-TPD-053B-2 (002)

Traffic staff are looking for public feedback regarding the installation of chicanes on Rosehill Avenue between Santolina Street and Mazon Street.

A chicane is a traffic calming measure that curves the road inward requiring one direction of traffic to give way to oncoming vehicles and slowing traffic for safety.

Chicanes typically consists of a raised curb and just like in curb extensions, a hazard marker sign will be placed on the chicane.   Groups of chicanes are normally placed with alternating priority down a road, so that each direction of vehicle traffic may have to stop and give priority in equal amounts.

Any person who wishes to raise objections to these road modifications is encouraged to contact the City Clerk, in writing, at the address below by August 13, 2018.
