Waterloo Region is a Leader in Roundabouts

October 8, 2009 at 2:04 am Leave a comment

We’re leading the way as modern roundabouts sprout across Ontario.

The Bridgeport roundabout opens this fall at Bridge and Lancaster streets in Kitchener. Cambridge has a new roundabout at Pinebush Road and Thompson Drive.

Planners are expanding traffic circles onto local streets. Examples include a mini-roundabout at Margaret Avenue and Union Street in Waterloo, a roundabout to improve circulation at the Conestoga Mall in Waterloo, and a small circle opening this fall on West River Road in Cambridge.

Before 2009 ends, there will be 13 high-volume roundabouts on local commuter roads, plus other circles on quieter streets. More roundabouts are planned.
