The Region of Peel has reduced the speed limits on two major roads in Brampton.
The speed limits on Bovaird Drive and Mississauga Road, both regional roads, have been reduced by the regional council.
The Council approved the third reading of the Domestic Rules 24-2019 on March 28.
With 24-2019 bylaws, this region reduced the speed limit on Regional Road 1 (Mississauga Road) from 80 km / h to 70 km / h from 400 meters north of Regional Road 6 (Queen Street West) to 200 meters north of Regional Road 14 (Mayfield Road).
This region also reduced the speed limit on Regional Road 10/107 (Bovaird Drive) from 70 km/hr to 60 km/hr from Regional Road 7 (Airport Road) to 730 meters west of Heritage Road.
In addition, the council amended the Bylaw No. 15-2013, which is a household budget to regulate traffic on the road under the jurisdiction of the City of Peel County.
The region has informed Peel Regional Police, Halton Regional Police, Ontario Provincial Police, City of Brampton and City of Caledon about the change.
The new speed limit is in line with the region’s Zero Vision road-safety plan. It also aims to keep the road safe because many developments have come to Bovaird Drive and Mississauga Road.
What do you think of the change in speed limits on these two roads?
