Traffic Calming

We want to make sure that our neighbourhood streets are safe and calm for all.

Residents Concerns about Traffic Speeding through the Neighbourhood:

On Thursday, September 24, 2020, a meeting took place between members of the City of London Transportation and Planning staff, residents from Lorne Avenue, Princess Avenue, Elias Street and Old East Village Community Association representatives. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss residents concerns about increased speeding on these streets attributed to traffic diversion from Dundas Street .

As a result of the meeting the Traffic Division has initiaited the following action:

  • Speed & Volume studies were started today on Lorne Avenue between Ontario Street and English Street and on Elias Street between Ontario Street and English Street.
  • Centre line markers will be installed tomorrow ( September 30, 2020 ) on Lorne Avenue, Princess Avenue and Elias Street. Depending on the location, there may be one centre marker or three markers structured to restrict parking so that the road is not reduced to one lane wide.

For further information about these initiatives , or to provide comment, please contact
