At its meeting of May 13 and 14, 1998, the Council of the City of Toronto gave consideration
to Clause No. 61 contained in Report No.5 of the Toronto Community Council, headed "
Traffic Area Management Plan for the Teddington Park / Wanless Park Area ( North
Council deferred consideration of this Clause and requested the Ward Councillors to hold a
public meeting in this regard, with representatives from the North York District.
Councillors, community representatives and staff of the North York District met with
Councillors, community representatives and staff of the Toronto District to discuss the
proposed traffic area management plan and its possible implications on the North York
It was agreed after a length discussion that the proposed right turn restrictions from Lawrence
Avenue at Ronan Avenue and Ardrossan Place between the hours of 7:00a.m. - 9:00 a.m. and
3:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m., Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays excepted, could proceed to
Council for consideration.
The major concern of the Lawrence Park Community in North York is that the proposed
restrictions could cause traffic to turn through the community from Lawrence Avenue at
Mildenhall Road the first street prior to the proposed turn restrictions. This would impact an
already congested roadway, because of the parents who pick up and drop off their children at
the Toronto French School, at number 101 Mildenhall Road.
This proposal, if approved, will be monitored by staff of the Works & Emergency Service
Department during the six month test. Communications with the area Councillors and
community will be open through out the test and any variations in traffic volume will be
reported. Upon Completion of the six month test, based on the results of the traffic data, a
decision will be made by all involved parties as to weather the restriction remain.
Mr. Michael Frederick, Director of Traffic Operations, at 395 - 7484.
