Seems some North End Hamilton residents are not happy with some measures aimed at calming traffic through that neighbourhood.
They’ve have told Ward 2 Councillor Jason Farr –the so called “traffic chokers” at intersections are taking away from the limited inventory of parking space.
Traffic chokers are metal poles about a metre high at intersections.
A five-year pilot project called the North End Traffic Management Plan was implemented in August.
It calls for traffic to be slowed to 30 kilometers per hour on some streets, as well as the chokers, directional changes and a roundabout at James and Strachan.
Farr was given a 400 name petition asking that the “chokers” be removed.
The city’s project manager has asked the North End residents to have patience saying the plan is not etched in stone.
Steve Molloy adding the city is willing to find a solution everyone can be happy with. (Hamilton Spectator)
