The recently released ‘MOVING FORWARD‘ is ‘An Action Plan to Improve Safety and Opportunities for Pedestrians and Cyclists in Ward 11’. It’s a huge and detailed report by the Ward 11 Pedestrian Safety and Cycling Committee (PSCC) and contains 31 recommendations. The plan was commissioned by Councillor Frances Nunziata in an effort to create a safe environment for cyclists and pedestrians in Ward 11. It has already received praise in other jurisdictions.
This is a fantastic report by the pedestrian and cycling safety committee in Ward 11. 31 specific recommends to make streets safer.

One of the slogans used by the authors is, “A safe pedestrian is a happy pedestrian.” If I may be so bold as to suggest a corollary, “An unsafe pedestrian or cyclist becomes a motorist”.
The PSCC Plan has 31 recommendations grouped around four main areas:
- Pedestrian safety
- Add safe cycling options to our streets and roads.
- Ensure that people can reach key destinations safely by walking or cycling
- Ideas that don’t fit into 1-3.
It’s well worth a read. Let’s hope it doesn’t gather dust somewhere.
