City to present draft traffic calming design for Moray Street at virtual information session

The City of Port Moody is hosting a virtual information session on October 21, 2021 from 6:30pm to 8pm to share a draft design for traffic calming measures on Moray Street. 

We recently asked residents about improving road safety on Moray Street and thank everyone who completed our survey. Your feedback helped to develop the draft design for traffic calming measures – you can read the public engagement summary at engage.portmoody.ca/moray.

The virtual information session will include a presentation by City staff and provide an opportunity for participants to ask questions and share feedback. Advance registration is required – please visit engage.portmoody.ca/moray to register by October 18, 2021. Following the session on October 21, we’ll post the information presented to the Moray Street Traffic Calming project page on Engage Port Moody, our public engagement hub.

Some traffic calming measures have already been put in place on Moray Street – such as pavement markings for on-street parking and a bike lane, as well as flashing speed limit signs – to address concerns raised by the community. While these measures have resulted in improvements, there is room to make further changes to improve safety for road users and community residents. We have initiated a traffic calming study and pilot project to address traffic concerns on Moray Street. 

Our traffic calming study will assess the current conditions on Moray Street and propose physical measures to:

  • reduce speeding;
  • encourage sustainable methods of transportation (walking, rolling, cycling, etc.); and
  • improve overall safety and accessibility.
