Moray Street spans between St. Johns Street and Brookmount Avenue and connects to Thermal Drive in Coquitlam. It currently has a posted speed limit of 30 kilometres an hour and carries approximately 7,000 vehicles per day. Moray Street is used by local residents and people accessing local businesses. And, as one of the few north-south connections between Port Moody and Coquitlam, it is also used by drivers travelling between the two cities.

Project summary

In 2020, the City of Port Moody implemented initial traffic calming measures on Moray Street, including pavement markings for on-street parking, a bike lane, and flashing speed limit signs to address the concerns raised by the community. However, it was determined in 2021 that further changes were needed. As a result, a traffic calming study was conducted, and public engagement took place during the summer of 2021. You can visit the Moray Street Traffic Calming Project page on Engage Port Moody to learn more about the public engagement.

Following the study and community feedback, staff developed a proposed pilot project in the fall/winter of 2021. The pilot project aimed to reduce speeding, encourage sustainable methods of transportation such as walking, rolling, cycling and overall safety and accessibility on Moray Street. The proposal was presented in a report to Council, which was approved at the March 22, 2022 Regular Council Meeting (Item 9.1).

During the summer of 2022, the pilot traffic calming measures were implemented on Moray Street, and the City collected informal feedback through an online form on the webpage. Throughout the following months, from summer 2022 to spring 2023, staff closely monitored the pilot to assess its effectiveness. In June 2023, Council endorsed the staff recommendation to make the pilot project permanent. You can read more about this recommendation in the June 13, 2023 Report to Council (item 11.1).

In the meantime, the City remains committed to maintaining the pilot project and promptly replacing any damaged markers. Regular inspections and repairs will ensure a safe and efficient environment on Moray Street during this transitional period, providing a reliable solution until the permanent structures are completed in 2024.
