The City of Hamilton is working to create a Complete Streets Report to help improve road safety throughout neighbourhoods in Ward 14. The study area includes all 11 neighbourhoods of Ward 14.

In response to concerns from residents of Ward 14 and in an effort to further the progress being made through Hamilton’s Strategic Road Safety Program and Vision Zero Action Plan, the City of Hamilton has engaged CIMA+ to create a report that will identify Complete Streets recommendations for Ward 14. The recommendations will look to tackle the key elements of concerns previously raised, including but not limited to:

  • High Speeds: reduction of traffic speeds in residential areas through the use of traffic calming measures.
  • Driver Behaviour: known locations of poor driver compliance and aggressive driving will be assessed, to identify preventative design solutions.
  • Safety: collision prone locations will be assessed to identify likely causes and opportunities for safety improvements. Roads are not just for cars; the study will also focus on pedestrian and cyclist safety
  • Mobility: locations of known connectivity issues for all modes (cars, pedestrians, and bikes) will be assessed to identify gaps in the network and identify access and mobility improvements.

This project is specifically focused on improving safety and operations along residential and collector streets in Ward 14 only – arterial roads will not be a part of this project since they are already under consideration as part of the ongoing Complete Livable Better Streets Design Manual Project.

We want to hear from you!

We want to hear your thoughts on:

  • Known problems of the existing roads
  • Do the existing roads suit all your needs: both in travel by car and on foot/by bike?
  • How would you like to see your neighbourhood roads changed?
