The City of St. Catharines is requesting feedback from residents on installing a permanent concrete speed cushion on Thorncliff Drive. Last year, a temporary rubber speed cushion was installed to allow residents an opportunity to experience the impacts of this type of traffic calming. Staff are now prepared to make the traffic calming permanent with the installation of a concrete speed cushion.

Prior to proceeding with making the speed cushion permanent, local resident support is required from a minimum of 51 per cent of the total household’s surveyed. If this requirement is met, staff will proceed with the installation of the permanent concrete speed cushion.

Please note that the proposal is to install the permanent speed cushion in the same location as the temporary speed cushion (see diagram below). No modifications to the layout or changes to the number of speed cushions is being considered.

A support rate of less than 51 per cent will result in the elimination of traffic calming on the street. The permanent concrete speed cushion will not be installed, and the temporary rubber speed cushion will not be reinstated.

Please give your response in the quick poll below. Feedback close Monday, April 5 at 4:30 p.m.
