On June 1, 2016 I hosted a joint community consultation with neighbouring City Councillor Mike Layton (Ward 19, Trinity- Spadina) to discuss a proposal to turn Dovercourt Road between Dundas Street West and Queen Street West into a one way road. This proposal came forward as a result of safety concerns on this narrow but busy section of Dovercourt and a petition to turn it into a one-way road.
At the meeting there were some concerns regarding turning Dovercourt into a one-way road, such as traffic spilling onto other neighbourhood streets and increased vehicle speeds as a result of wider lanes. Therefore, City staff will examine a variety of options including speed humps, bollards, textured paving surfaces and other measures to address the safety concerns on this street. We will report back to the community for your input and feedback once a new proposal is developed and I hope to provide an update on the next steps soon.
