Project Background

The City of Toronto’s Vision Zero Road Safety Plan is focused on reducing traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries by making our roads safer for everyone, especially vulnerable road users such as seniors, school children, and people walking and cycling.

State-of-good-repair work, including sewer and watermain replacements, road resurfacing, and road reconstruction, are scheduled in 2022 and 2023. While the design work for 2022 has been finalized, the work in 2023 provides an opportunity to install additional safety improvements.

Project Goals

  1. Improve safety and accessibility for everyone
  2. Maintain access to all businesses, services and residences

Proposed Street Design Principles

The following principles are developed based on previous input and engagement with local residents, businesses, and stakeholders. They are open for public input and we welcome your feedback. Your comments will help inform the preliminary design work, which will be shared with the public in Spring 2022.

Streets are public spaces

While streets are locations for movement, they are also vital public spaces for people.

Streets can transform

Many streets were built and designed in a different era and need to be reconfigured to meet current and future needs.

Design for safety

Streets should be designed so that people walking, shopping, cycling, parking, loading and driving can cross paths safely.

Streets are ecosystems

Well-designed streets act to connect human-made systems and natural systems, and can help increase green space, create shade, manage stormwater and flood risks.
