Gateway speed-limit signs coming to The Glens

Gateway speed-limit signs, which mark the start and end of areas with lower speed limits, will soon be coming to The Glens.


New provincial legislation allows municipalities to use the signs wherever speed limits are less than 50 kilometres per hour. The City will install signs on local roads in residential areas and on collector roads with speed limits of 40 or 30 kilometres per hour.


Pineglen East has been designated as a 30 kilometres per hour zone, while Pineglen Annex and Country Place have been designated as 40 kilometres per hour zones.


In order to lower the speed limit on Brookdale, Leeward, Belledune and Briggs a petition will be circulated later in the Spring.


The traffic department have not yet considered Pineglen West or Grenfell.


Please see the attached diagrams below for further information on The Glens implementation.
