Springfield Road speed limit signs may be reinstalled

  • Print

Springfield Road could soon return to what’s familiar.

Residents expressed concern after 50 km/h speed limit signs were suddenly removed last month, but at East Kildonan-Transcona Community Committee on Feb. 26, Coun. Jeff Browaty (North Kildonan) recommended the signs be reinstalled.

The recommendation will be forwarded to the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works, which next meets April 16.

The road was originally 50 km/h west of Raleigh Street and increased to 60 km/h east of the intersection. However, the road became 50 km/h throughout when the Chief Peguis Trail extension was built and Springfield no longer intersected with Lagimodiere Boulevard, resulting in a drastic decrease in traffic.

Though there aren’t any homes that face Springfield east of Raleigh, Browaty stressed the road is a residential one.

"Compared to other streets in the ward, most of the other local residential streets are very clearly of a residential nature," he said. "(Springfield) was built a little differently, and as a result, people drove fast."
