Safe Speeds & Complete Streets

A street is shown with trees, pedestrians on sidewalks, different styles of cycling lanes, a bus stop and a car.

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 of Kitchener has begun a review looking at reducing the speed limit in residential neighbourhoods from 50 km/h to 40 km/h. The City is also 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 want to listen and better understand residents' everyday experience of traffic speeds and our street designs. There are two surveys to provide your input on each of these priorities. You can also provide your input in person at the events listed in the Key Dates section of this page.

Thanks to students in Wilfrid Laurier's C3 Innovation Labs for partnering with us on this engagement.
