The City of Richmond wants to extend its 30-kilometre-per-hour speed limit in Steveston to fully encompass the village area.
The proposed expansion of the traffic zone would address residents’ concerns about truck traffic caused by the development on Bayview Street, east of No. 1 Road.
The current 30-kmh speed zone was established in 2011 in Steveston Village to improve pedestrian safety and walkability.
The zone currently includes Chatham Street and the surrounding roads in the village, but with the proposed extension it would continue east of No. 1 Road, along Moncton Street, to include the roads in front of Steveston Community Park.
A small area at the western end of the village would also be included in the expansion, from Chatham Street along Sixth and Seventh avenues.
City staff are presenting the recommendation at tomorrow’s Public Works and Transportation meeting. If approved, council will make a final decision on Monday.
