Community Council Recommendations

Scarborough Community Council recommends that:

 

1. City Council authorize the installation of traffic control signals at the intersection of Morningside Avenue and Cumber Avenue/Fordover Drive.

Origin

(March 27, 2019) Report from the Acting Director, Traffic Management, Transportation Services

Summary

Further to a request from Councillor Paul Ainslie, Transportation Services staff reviewed the feasibility of installing traffic control signals on Morningside Avenue at Cumber Avenue and Fordover Gate.

 

This report recommends that traffic control signals not be approved at the intersection of Morningside Avenue and Cumber Avenue and Fordover Drive as the existing conditions do not meet the warrant for the installation of traffic control signals at this time.  Currently, this location is controlled by a stop sign for eastbound traffic on Cumber Avenue and a stop sign for westbound traffic on Fordover Drive.  A pedestrian crossover (PXO) is located on the north side of the intersection.
