Upper Avenue Road Traffic Study
At Councillor Colle’s request, City Council approved a “Study of Traffic Calming Measures for Upper Avenue Road Area” in the fall of 2019. During the last few months, SAHRA, UACA and SAHRA volunteers met twice with the traffic engineer leading the study.
The formal study area runs from Highway 401 in the north to Brooke Avenue and from Yonge Boulevard in the east to Clyde Avenue. The study will take into account inputs well beyond these geographical boundaries, such as new residential and commercial developments on Yonge Street, Lawrence Avenue and Avenue Road. The objective of the traffic study is to provide solutions that will lower the speed and volume of traffic as well as enhance the safety of “vulnerable” road users (pedestrians and cyclists).
Reduced traffic caused by the pandemic has meant that the City cannot gather representative traffic volume data and this has delayed the study. Once “normal” traffic volumes return, the data will be gathered and then analysed. This will be a key input into the proposed solutions.
In the meantime, the traffic engineer mentioned that he would be interested in anecdotal information which might have an impact on the study. If you have any information that you would like to pass along, please let us know at There will be public meetings with the traffic engineer at a later time. In the meantime, you can visit the City’s Traffic Calming website for general information.
COVID-19 Vaccines
Everyone is interested in keeping up-to-date with the arrangements for COVID Vaccinations.  We have added a section COVID-19 Vaccine to the COVID page on our website. It contains information on the vaccine rollout, government information, new articles, COVID-19 information sites as well as contact information. We will keep this updated as additional information is released.Councillor Colle, MPP Martin and MP Mendicino Newsletters also contain updates on COVID-19 issues. 

COVID-19 Case Counts for Bedford Park-Nortown area
 The City of Toronto publishes COVID-19 recent case rates (cases with episode dates during the previous 21 days, per 100,000 people) for its 140 defined neighbourhoods. SAHRA has created a graph which shows the case rates since mid-December for Bedford Park – Nortown and its surrounding neighbourhoods. All of SAHRA is within this neighbourhood. Bedford Park – Nortown is shown in red. The City's graph is updated Monday, Wednesday and Friday, except on statutory holidays. SAHRA will update our graph on SAHRA’s website within 24 hours of the City’s update.

Reminder - Speed Enforcement Cameras on Wilson
Some months ago, street signs were posted on Wilson Avenue near Armour Heights Public School that indicated the area is a Community Safety Zone and that fines are increased this zone. Additional signs were put up to warn that speed enforcement cameras would arrive “soon”. Well, soon has arrived! The cameras have been installed, along with a digital readout which advises how fast vehicles are travelling. Speeding tickets will be issued by the province through the mail to the owner of the vehicle, regardless of who is driving. Please be respectful and drive below the speed limit. Details can be found on the City’s website.
