Council Approves Traffic Signal Synchronization Upgrades

In June 2013, my colleagues passed a motion to improve traffic signal synchronization at City Council. I am pleased that the Mayor and the Chair of Public Works made this a priority in response to my letter of September 2011.

 

Traffic congestion is a significant problem for Toronto’s motorists, public transit users and cyclists. This congestion costs the region’s economy an estimated $3.3 billion per year while negatively impacting on the quality of life of our residents. The long-term solution to this problem is building a more accessible, extensive and efficient public transportation system. In the meantime, we can take significant steps such as this to improve traffic flow in the short-term.
