If you have you been wanting to give the city a piece of your mind when it comes to road safety you now have the chance to do just that.
Officials say with 800 annual collisions, including 100 resulting in serious injuries or fatalities, the City has recognized a new and broader approach to road safety is required through the development of a Road Safety Strategy.
A road safety strategy survey’s been issued to hear resident’s opinions on traffic and pedestrian safety in North Bay.
The deadline’s November 20 and following that will be a public open house.
The event, which will take place in the city’s main lobby, will give residents a chance to ask questions and learn more about the city’s road safety strategy project.
Officials say the strategy’s development includes a review of existing transportation infrastructure standards, incorporating insights from public consultations and stakeholders and once implemented, will inform decisions on road design, traffic regulation, signage, and potential safety measures such as automated speed enforcement.
The strategy is slated for Council approval in summer 2024.
