Making Avenue Road humane and efficient
The Star: Avenue Road is currently “an urban speedway cutting through the neighbourhood.” It is basically a six-lane highway, and the design encourages fast traffic, speeding. The sidewalk is too narrow, especially for seniors, people with strollers, and people with accessibility issues.
Avenue Road is not safe for anyone now.
This redesign put forward by local residents and the Avenue Road Safety Coalition looks fabulous.
A better road design, with wider sidewalks, more green space, and lower speed limits, will make Avenue Road safer for everyone.
