Traf­fic mo­tion hits dead end

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

TOWN of Cam­bridge Mayor Keri Shan­non’s mo­tion to pass a traf­fic as­sess­ment was blocked by her op­po­nents.

Ms Shan­non sub­mit­ted a mo­tion at the Oc­to­ber 25 meet­ing that the Town com­mis­sion a traf­fic study for the traf­fic flow from east of Jer­sey street, Wem­b­ley through West Leed­erville to the city and on to the free­way.

The ex­er­cise was to pro­vide an anal­y­sis of changes in flow with ref­er­ence to pre­vi­ous traf­fic stud­ies and pro­vide rec­om­men­da­tions about traf­fic move­ments in the area.

Coun­cil­lor Corinne MacRae ques­tioned the rel­e­vance of the pro­posed study and asked for sup­port­ing data.

Cr An­dres Tim­mer­ma­nis sup­ported the study and said it was “be­fud­dling” that a coun­cil­lor asked for data be­fore seek­ing a traf­fic study.

Ms Shan­non said she thought it was im­por­tant to get the data while the Town worked on its five-year bike plan.

The mo­tion was lost.
