The Avenue Road Safety Coalition (ARSC) represents the concerns of the residents and visitors to Avenue Road who walk and cycle between Bloor Street and St. Clair Avenue. We embody the City’s Planning Objective to “create the right balance of space for pedestrians, cyclists, transit and vehicles.”

This 2.1-kilometre stretch of Avenue Road between St. Clair Avenue and Bloor Street West is a six-lane, high-speed road that is unsafe and hostile to pedestrians and cyclists. The sidewalks are substandard and dangerously narrow, especially when considering the speeding cars and trucks.
