Church St update

Dan Harris sent along the response he received from city staff regarding the traffic islands on Church St. It’s good-ish news.

Staff say that there won’t be traffic islands, which—in my opinion—is a blessing. The streets are too narrow.

City staff also said that they had hoped to alternate the placement of islands on the south and north sides of the street but “Unfortunately this was not possible as the TTC required two buses to be able to pass each other at the same time”.

They also left open the possibility that the the islands could be better placed in the future when the road is repaved: “with any future road rehabilitation, the islands can be incorporated, like on Riverside Drive.”

Hello,
This post is a little vague without some context. What do you mean when you state “ traffic island” ? Don’t we already have traffic islands between Pine and Elm on Church? Could you specify where the traffic islands are proposed?
Thanks so much!
Really enjoy your posts regarding Weston news.
Thanks,
Maureen

As someone who lives on Church St., I was really hoping for these traffic islands. Cars and trucks often scream along my street at 80 kmh or more. Sometimes the police catch them, but that hasn’t been enough to slow the idiots down. Something has to change!
