Notice of Implementation

From the City of Ottawa:

We are pleased to inform you that the City of Ottawa is planning to implement a flat-top speed hump on Tyndall Street to address speeding and pedestrian safety concerns raised by concerned members of the community. The flat-top speed hump is proposed to be installed as shown in the attached figure. The funding for the design and construction is in place and construction is expected to occur during the 2015 construction season.

Traffic calming measures along Tyndall Street were initially recommended as part of an earlier Parkdale Area Transportation Study. Various measures were considered to address speeding and pedestrian safety concerns, and the City is now proposing a flat-top speed hump as the most appropriate measure.

If you require further details or have any question in regards to the information provided above, please do not hesitate to contact me.
