City staff will present a report with a proposed traffic calming pilot project at the March 22, 2022 Regular Council Meeting (Item 9.1).


City staff presented a draft design for traffic calming measures on Moray Street at an online information session in October 2021. View the presentation. Thank you to all who attended the session and provided input on the design.

Feedback from our community survey helped develop a draft design. Read the engagement summary to find out what we heard from the community when we asked about improving road safety on Moray Street. Thank you to everyone who completed our community survey.


How can we improve road safety on Moray Street?

Moray Street spans between St. Johns Street and Brookmount Avenue and connects to Thermal Drive in Coquitlam. It currently has a posted speed limit of 30 kilometres an hour and carries approximately 7,000 vehicles per day. Moray Street is used by local residents and people accessing local businesses. And, as one of the few north-south connections between Port Moody and Coquitlam, it is also used by drivers travelling between the two cities.

To address concerns raised by the community, some traffic calming measures have been put in place on Moray Street such as pavement markings for on-street parking and a bike lane, as well as flashing speed limit signs.

While these measures have resulted in improvements, there is room to make further changes to improve safety for road users and community residents. We have initiated a traffic calming study and pilot project to address traffic concerns on Moray Street.

The traffic calming study will assess the current conditions on Moray Street and propose physical measures to:

  • reduce speeding;
  • encourage sustainable methods of transportation (walking, rolling, cycling, etc.); and
  • improve overall safety and accessibility.
