Speed Limit Reductions Scarborough Centre

City Planning Staff are recommending that speed limits on roads in and around our Centre be reduced.

Here’s what they are telling our Councillors:

Vision Zero: Toronto’s Road Safety Plan identifies speed reductions as a key safety measure to reduce the occurrence of pedestrian or cyclist fatalities. Reducing the speed limit by 10 km/hr significantly improves the outcome of a pedestrian involved in a vehicle crash. Table 1 identifies proposed speeds for streets within Scarborough Centre to enhance road safety for all users and modes.

Table 1: Existing and Proposed Speeds in Scarborough Centre Street(s)
Existing Speeds
Proposed Speeds
Ellesmere Road, Markham Road, Bellamy Road, McCowan Road, Brimley Road
60 km/hr
50 km/hr
Progress Avenue, Corporate Drive, Bushby Drive
50 km/hr
40 km/hr
Proposed Local Streets
30 km/hr

This will be considered by our Councillor Glenn DeBaeremaeker and the other members of Scarborough Community Council on May 2nd.

Tell Glenn what you think:

Glenn: This is a great idea, just what we need.

Glenn: This is a horrible idea. Don't approve this.
