Say "NO" to Winnipeg's West Broadway One-Way Streets

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

The City of Winnipeg is exploring options pertaining to the roadways in our neighborhood to accommodate cyclists and we want you to be aware of how these changes will affect your daily route. 

The city has proposed three options and they have considerable support for the first option. This proposition will change the following routes:

  • Balmoral will change into an eastbound one-way off Sherbrook and northbound to Broadway, meaning you will no longer have access off Broadway
  • Granite Way will become a westbound one-way off Osborne, resulting in NO access to Osborne, thus funneling Great West Life’s 3000 car count into our neighborhood and onto Broadway (which already has too much traffic)
  • Langside will be a southbound one-way from Balmoral to Westminster and home of a new bus route

All of these changes will greatly impact the daily lives of everyone in our neighborhood by creating more vehicle congestion and it will significantly inconvenience the people who work and live in the area by making the route longer. If you’re coming from the North or East you will now have to make a large loop around. 

To date, much of the support has come from cyclists because residents in the surrounding area were not fairly informed of the impending changes. With this information, we encourage you to take action and fight for your neighborhood.
