Placing new 40km/h ‘gateway’ signs across Ottawa could take decades without extra cash

By Beatrice Britneff, Global News Ottawa, August 15, 2018

The City of Ottawa is moving ahead to implement new so-called “gateway” signs demanding vehicles slow down to 40km/h in certain residential areas – but the current budget for the initiative means it’ll take about 30 years before the signs are installed citywide.

The 40km/h signs will be placed at the entrances and exits of a designated residential zone – rather than being posted every 300 metres in the area, as the law previously required for speed limits lower than the default 50 km/h.
