Install safe pedestrian access down Glancaster Road

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


WHY ARE WE STARTING THIS PETITION?

There are approximately 450 homes (~1350 residents), with more development in progress, in the Glancaster Road and Twenty Road area with no safe pedestrian access to nearby amenities such as: medical offices, schools, HSR, churches and local businesses. Residents are forced to utilize the narrow shoulder (or use the road itself during the winter months as snow removal equipment simply clears the 2 lanes for vehicle traffic). With minimal street lights and vehicles travelling at high speeds, this is not safe for people who walk, bike, push strollers or require wheelchairs to travel.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING FOR?

We are asking the City Of Hamilton to install:

  1. Safe pedestrian access (ie: sidewalks, walk ways, etc)
  2. Street lights
  3. Bike lanes (if feasible)

The impacted area should start from the corner of Twenty Road and proceed north down Glancaster Road to connect with Rymal Road.

IMPACT TO OUR COMMUNITY

  • Minimize potential fatalities (pedestrians being struck by automobiles) and/or injuries (pedestrians walking on uneven ground)
  • Reduce carbon emissions with fewer cars being used for short distances
  • Increase and promote a healthy and active lifestyle
