Google_Maps-1.pngWhat is the problem?

On Monday, 24 April, Dundas St was closed to vehicles from the intersection of Quebec St to Egerton St. Many residents have reported significant detouring traffic along Burbrook Place, Dorinda St. and Charlotte St.

Residents are concerned about the high speed of vehicles headed Northbound as they approach the park and Boyle Memorial Community Centre. Several school bus stops are also located in the area, causing additional safety concerns with the increase in traffic and speeds while children walk home, and particularly, while they use the cross walk at Lorne Ave and Quebec St.  Side streets such as Queens Ave, Dufferin Ave, Lorne Ave and Ontario St have also seen traffic increases and additional safety concerns as drivers attempt to find detours around the construction zone. 

What can I do?

Temporary traffic calming measures are sometimes deployed by the city in residential neighbourhoods impacted by detouring vehicles.

If you support temporary traffic calming measures in this area during the closure of Dundas St between Quebec St and Egerton St, please add your name to this petition.

If you would like to contact me directly, about this or any other issue, please email me at jhelmer@london.ca or call me at 226-926-9063.

    I’d like permanent traffic calming on Woodman and Chralotte as people use these streets to skirt around to Quebec. I notice daily, people ignoring the 3 way stop at Woodman and Queens – we call it a stoptional. The average speed of vehicles doesn’t slow

    down off of Dundas and is incredible

    Dangerous.

    We desperately need a permanent traffic light at Lorne and Quebec and better signage along Queens Ave.

    Change all the other intersections to 4 way stops.

    I live on queens and have noticed increased traffic, frustrated drivers. Speeding cars, trucks and buses. I’ve seen traffic going the wrong way down queens because it’s faster than going around through detour. Fix this before we have fatalities

    I live on Dufferin and have noticed a significant increase in detour traffic. East bound Dundas drivers are coming North on Ontario and cutting down Dufferin since it is the first East bound street they cross. This area should also be considered for the measures.

    I support this petition, however it needs to be amended to have the circle include the other end of the issues happening with the traffic turning off of Dundas onto Ontario Street heading up to and beyond Queens Avenue. You mention Ontario as a side street, but it needs to be included as an area of high concern. Traffic here has severely increased. There have been several near accidents. Young children walk this area and have to cross Queens Ave on the way to a bus stop in front of Carson library. There are serious safety concerns here as well (and always have been), but with the additional traffic it is far worse.

    Perhaps a 4 way stop at Dorinda and Princess? Accidents are coming as folks whip around Burbrook onto Princess and folks racing up Dorinda hardly pause at the stop sign.

    A city wide pre-emptive plan should be established for how to calm traffic in any neighbourhood affected by detours of major streets.
