Time to slow down in Deer Pointe Park

  • Print

Motorists in Headingley’s Deer Pointe Park will have to take their feet off the gas and slow down to 50.

CAO Chris Fulsher said municipal public works staff will be erecting 50 kilometre per hour speed limit signs along Taillieu Road, which leads into the subdivision located off Roblin Boulevard, and Deer Pointe Drive, which winds past new homes and others still under construction.

The new signage comes after a petition signed by 47 Deer Pointe Park residents was presented to council on July 10 and included as correspondence at the council’s July 22 meeting.

Ed Gramiak, who lives at the corner of Livingstone Way and Taillieu Road, said while he doesn’t have young children, he worries about the safety of neighbourhood children without having any speed signage in place.

"We have no speed signs at all," he said. "You have a residential area with no speed control."
Construction began in the Deer Pointe Park subdivision about three years ago, and Phase One is almost complete. Gramiak said he’s watched many large construction vehicles speed by on their way to and from the sites of homes being built.

"We’re on the corner. Many vehicles go through at 90 kilometres an hour," he said.

After hearing of council’s decision to put up speed limit signs, he was pleased.

"That’s wonderful. Council is doing the right thing," he said.
