Community Council Recommendations

The Toronto and East York Community Council recommends that:

 

1.  City Council approve the installation of traffic control signals at the intersection of Richmond Street West and Simcoe Street.

Origin

(May 1, 2017) Report from Acting Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District

Summary

City Council on April 26, 27 and 28, 2017, referred Item TE23.92 back to the Toronto and East York Community Council for further consideration at its May 2, 2017 meeting in order to permit the General Manager, Transportation Services to submit a revised report on the feasibility and installation timelines for a traffic light installation at Richmond Street West and Simcoe Street.

 

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

 

This report provides additional information on the above considered traffic control signals with respect to pedestrian and cyclist safety and mobility and includes a revised recommendation based on additional information and further consideration on feasibility.

 

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