Slow Streets

Slow Streets are routes for walking, cycling, and rolling that make it easier to exercise and access businesses in your local neighbourhood:

  • Motor vehicle access is limited to local traffic only.
  • People walking may pass each other using the roadway.
  • Drive slowly and watch for people on the road.
  • Access for emergency vehicles, and waste/recycling collection is maintained.

What's happeningShare your thoughts and shape your city

Since May, we've designated 40km of Slow Streets with simple traffic barriers and signs to make it easier for residents to exercise and access businesses in their local neighbourhood. 

As part of the Slow Streets traffic calming upgrades, we'll continue to install additional signage and concrete barriers on selected Slow Streets. There will be some local changes to parking and traffic circulation.

We encourage you to stay involved, fill out a survey online, and share feedback about how these changes are working.
