Origin

(December 12, 2017) Report from the Director, Transportation Services, Etobicoke York District

Summary

The purpose of this report is to obtain approval for the installation of traffic control signals at the intersections of Brown's Line and Woodbury Road.

 

Although the warrants for the installation of traffic control signals are not met, a safety audit of the existing pedestrian crossover on Brown's Line Road and Woodbury Road revealed that this location is no longer environmentally suitable for a pedestrian crossover given the operating speed of vehicular traffic on Brown's Line. Based on the results of the pedestrian crossover audit, staff is recommending that the pedestrian crossover be replaced with traffic control signals.

 

Since the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) operates a transit service on Brown's Line, City Council approval of this report is required. TTC staff has been consulted on the matter and have not objected to the proposal.
