Safe Speeds & Complete Streets

Consultation has concluded

A street is shown with dimensions of elements for pedestrians, cyclists, transit, motor vehicles and greenery.

Road safety for all modes of transportation is a major priority for staff and city council, based on resident feedback during the election and our ongoing community engagement activities.

The City is developing a Complete Streets approach and guidelines that design for calmer traffic speeds and better balance the needs of pedestrians, cyclists, transit users and motorists. City staff are seeking feedback on the draft Complete Streets guidelines, through a survey (closes Sept 17). You can also provide your input in person at the event listed in the Key Dates section of this page.

The City of Kitchener has completed a review looking at reducing the speed limit in residential neighbourhoods from 50 km/h to 40 km/h. A pilot project in three neighbourhoods has been approved by City Council.

  • Kitchener is taking a Complete Streets approach to street design. Our vision: 

    Every street in Kitchener is safe, comfortable and convenient for all.

    To achieve this vision, city staff has prepared a draft of Kitchener’s first Complete Streets guidelines and welcome public comment and suggestions for improvement. The guidelines will be used to design streets in Kitchener, including reconstruction projects and new roads. Note this does not apply to regional roads.

    We encourage you to read the guidelines and background material in the Document Library before completing this survey. Survey closes September 17. Thank you.
