- Dave Ferguson – email@example.com
- Through PB2014 (Participatory Budgeting) Stinson has ~$125k for traffic calming measures at Wentworth rail trail crossing.
- Overhead advanced warning signs on arms with flashers and simple crosswalk at Wentworth & Cumberland being installed at a cost of approximately $70k
- Highway traffic act is changing which will allow municipalities to add crossings.
- Considered a minor arterial road.
- no pedestrian crosswalk can go in at the rail trail crossing due to poor sightline and steep grade.
- Pedestrian activated stop light is possible, but would be delayed for up to 5 years due to CP co-ordination
- Current proposal to public works being submitted in 2 weeks. If this is approved the process will begin to put in the Pedestrian activated light. Jason Farr to work with CP to expedite the process.
- Stop sign cannot be installed because there is no intersection.
- Jason Farr’s office will send a copy of the report to Stinson once completed.
- Part of the report is to reduce the speed limit on Charlton to 40kph (lowest speed limit allowed by the provincial law.)
- Draft drawings of plans are part of the report.
- Roads and maintenance would have stats around how often the guard rail is being replaced along with the flashing posts.
- Jason Farr to talk to Charlton residents about putting in rumble strips to slow traffic.
- Tunnel or bridge option possible review
- Look into re-evaluating the design of the southbound lane to reduce cars ‘cutting into’ traffic when lanes reduce from two to one.
- Temporary signs displaying driver’s speeds will be installed when speed limit is reduced to 40kph
- Next spring (2016) is the 2-way conversion of Wentworth, approved for 350K all the way to Barton.
