NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. — Drivers who take shortcuts through city streets are being targeted by a traffic calming program in North Vancouver.

A report prepared by city staff proposes a number of methods to reduce traffic along residential streets.

The report states that a program is needed because many motorists are taking short-cuts along residential streets to avoid the increased traffic on the city’s major roads.

Suggestions include traffic circles, raised median islands, and other obstructions meant to divert or slow traffic along certain streets.

City staff estimate that the total cost of implementing the traffic calming plans would be approximately $1.1 million.

The policy committee will be meeting at 7 p.m. on March 19 in council chambers to discuss the report. Members of the public will be able to obtain a free copy of the report at this meeting.
