Tweaks are being made to the city’s temporary traffic-calming program that some councillors hope will reduce a “bottleneck” of requests and speed up the installation of yellow flex stakes, planter boxes, road markings, signage and speed-display boards to slow down vehicles

.“Staff have a new strategy and more resources. I think they were just overwhelmed this term of council with the requests across all the wards for traffic-calming initiatives,” said River Coun. Riley Brockington, who complained about the time it has been taking to install these measures.
