Caille Ave Children , Pedestrian and Cyclists Safety concerns

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


The residents of Caille Avenue respectfully request your attention regarding safety concerns due to
increased traffic along Caille Avenue. The progression of the community due to West Beach
improvements, transformation of cottages into year around residences, and construction activities are several contributing factors to the increase in vehicular traffic levels on this beach road. Combined with the increase in running and cycling club’s usage of the street has created multiple scenarios of unsafe circumstances.

This is of immediate concern for safe passage of residents and visitors during the roundabout
construction period beginning April 8th where traffic will be re-routed onto Caille Avenue. Our
experience during the initial attempt to begin the roundabout in the Fall of 2018, has raised this cause for concern. These unsafe conditions will be exacerbated by the resultant increased traffic requiring the implementation of traffic calming measures. These measures must be included as part of the construction plans and must be used in the near future to address the issues listed below as a permanent solution.

Please see below our concerns and requests for solutions.

- Safe bicycle travel
Issues:

- Increased Police presence for speed enforcement

Thank you,
