New traf­fic mea­sures

Albany Advertiser - - NEWS -

Up to six traf­fic slow points could be in­stalled on Bathurst and Nel­son streets to help cut speed­ing.

The City of Al­bany’s de­vel­op­ment and in­fra­struc­ture com­mit­tee will dis­cuss a pro­posal to in­stall the “lo­cal area traf­fic man­age­ment de­vices” on the streets at an es­ti­mated cost of $25,000.

The plan was orig­i­nally be­fore the coun­cil ear­lier this year but was de­ferred for two months for fur­ther con­sid­er­a­tion. The re­port to next week’s com­mit­tee meet­ing said traf­fic is­sues on Bathurst and Nel­son streets had been on­go­ing since 2010.

Speed cush­ions were in­stalled in 2010 but re­moved in early 2015 be­cause of noise com­plaints from res­i­dents.

The re­port said traf­fic man­age­ment de­vices would re­duce traf­fic speed while min­imis­ing noise.
