The City of London is implementing an Area Speed Limits program lowering speed limits on roads with high levels of pedestrian and cycling activity.
Lower speed limits make our streets safer for all road users. The City of London is continuing to implement Vision Zero Road Safety Strategy initiatives that work towards calmer streets, and will continue to monitor the use of streets to determine when and where additional safety measures might be needed.
Neighbourhood streets within four upcoming areas have speed limit reductions to 40 kilometers an hour. This program will not impact major roads bordering the area.
The City will continue to track the use of streets and impacts on transit to determine when and where future area speed limits will be introduced.
The first phase of this program includes the following areas:
Neighbourhood roads within: Wharncliffe Road North - Oxford Street West- Oxford Street East - Adelaide Street North - Hamilton Road - Horton Street East.
With the exceptions of:
- King Street from Colborne Street to Adelaide Street North
- Queens Avenue from Adelaide Street North to Colborne Street
- Riverside Drive from Wharncliffe Road North to Dundas Street
- York Street from Stanley Street to Adelaide Street North
Neighbourhood roads within Hyde Park Road - Fanshawe Park Road West - Wonderland Road North - Gainsborough Road.
Neighbourhood roads within the area of Highbury Avenue South - Commissioners Road East - Jackson Road - Bradley Avenue.
Neighbourhood roads within Westdel Bourne - Oxford Street West - Commissioners Road West - Boler Road - Byron Baseline Road.
The City of London has also reduced speeds in the following locations:
- Dundas Place: The speed limit on Dundas Place, London’s flexible street from Ridout to Wellington Streets downtown, was lowered to 30 kilometres an hour to support shared use of the space and improve safety for all road users.
- School zones: Speed limits of 40 kilometres an hour have been implemented in school zones.
