Community Council Recommendations

Origin

(March 8, 2017) Report from the Traffic Control Signals - Richmond Street West and Simcoe Street

Summary

As the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) operates a transit service on Richmond Street West, City Council approval of this report is required.

 

Transportation Services has undertaken an operational review of the intersection of Richmond Street West and Simcoe Street.  The results of our review indicate that the installation of traffic control signals are technically warranted. However, due to the close proximity of adjacent traffic control signals, Transportation Services does not recommend the installation.
