Traffic to be slowed in Weston on King and Cross Sts

Two streets in Weston will be made a little slower over the next few months.

Residents of King St voted to approve speed humps along their road. A survey was taken last month by city staff and, unusually, enough residents voted, and voted in favour, to have the humps built between the tracks and Jane St. Traffic along the easternmost section of King sometimes goes quite fast; a speed survey caught some cars going faster than 65 km.h.

Cross St, just north of Church near Weston Rd, will also have its traffic better controlled. Residents had complained that cars sometimes go the wrong way down the one-way street. The street, which is the width of a two-way street, will have a planter installed at its northern-most end to deter cars from turning south off Coulter Ave. Community Council voted to approve the planter on Cross St yesterday.
