Speed humps target residential shortcutters

Guildford Drive and Sandy Hill area to receive traffic calming devices to slow down drivers

A city map shows the location of speed humps to be installed in a Sandy Hill neighbourhood.

Speed humps will be installed along roads in two different neighbourhoods after residents expressed concerns about drivers speeding along shortcuts.

The city will install seven speed humps and a raised crosswalk in the Sandy Hill area, along with five speed humps on Guilford Drive to slow down traffic.

In the Sandy Hill area, the humps – McKinley Drive will get five, with two more and a crosswalk installed on Sandy Hill Road – aim to deter drivers hoping to save time driving between McKee and Old Clayburn roads.

The Guilford speed humps hope to slow traffic moving between Marshall and Old Yale roads.

The project will cost $55,000, with the city contributing $45,000 and ICBC adding $10,000.
