Recent inspection by the City shows that sections of Regal Road need resurfacing to bring the road to a state of good repair. Resurfacing involves replacing the asphalt surface, and typically happens every 25-35 years. This planned road work provides an opportunity to bring the intersection of Regal Road and Springmount Avenue up to current standards and in line with industry best practices.

As part of the planned resurfacing work, the City is proposing to make changes to the intersection of Regal Road and Springmount Avenue. The proposed changes include widening and accessibility upgrades to the sidewalks, reducing the width of the motor vehicles lanes, installing a bump-out on the east side of Springmount Avenue, and extending the curbs at the southwest and southeast corners of the intersection.

Missing Sidewalks

At the Virtual Public Meeting on February 16, 2022, a comment was made about the missing sidewalk on Regal Road.

Construction of a sidewalk on the south side of Regal Road is currently not feasible based on slope, retaining walls and mature trees. The roadway has to be narrowed and parking restricted. This scope of work is best bundled with a future road reconstruction where the entire roadbed is replaced and there are more opportunities for extensive work.

In line with City policy, there is an existing sidewalk on the north side of Regal Road; improvements to crossings at the intersections will help people access the existing infrastructure safely.

Requests for new sidewalks can be sent to newsidewalks@toronto.ca where requests are logged, investigated and programmed for bundling with future works.

In 2022, a section of Regal Road is planned for resurfacing. As part of the resurfacing, staff are proposing changes to the intersection of Regal Road and Spingmount Avenue to align with the City’s Vision Zero Road Safety Plan, which aims to improve safety for all road users and reduce traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries on Toronto’s streets. The goals of the proposed changes are to increase visibility between road users, improve accessibility, shorten crossing distances and keep driving speeds low.

Proposed Changes Include:

  • Installing a bump-out on the east side of the intersection to shorten crossing distances and improve visibility between people crossing and vehicles
  • Well defined crossing areas with good visibility of people crossing
  • Reducing the corner curb radii to slow vehicle turning speeds
  • Removal of asphalt and increase in green space
