Heather Way in East Saint John (Apple Maps Image)

You have a few more days to offer your views on the future of Heather Way in East Saint John. The City is looking for feedback after a lively discussion on reducing the number of traffic lanes took place on social media in April.

That discussion centred on reducing the number of traffic lanes and using some of the space for bicycles and other active transportation making the link more people friendly.

Some of the discussion on Twitter focused on reduced traffic volumes on the street leading to increased speeding. Proponents of the “road diet” say reducing the number of lanes will help to reduce speeding while promoting healthier lifestyles.

City staff held a virtual community meeting last Wednesday evening – but – feedback is still being accepted at feedback@saintjohn.ca. You can watch the video of last week’s meeting here while the staff presentation is here.
