Project Update

June 11, 2021

The City of Edmonton will be rolling out a new program at the end of June! The Safe Speeds Toolkit will create ways for Edmontonians to support the implementation of the 40 km/h speed limit and address ongoing concerns about speeding in their neighbourhood. One tool in the toolkit is community signage.


We would like your input on community signage!


Take our quick 2 question survey here.

Please complete this survey by Monday, June 14 at 9 am.


Help us ensure the development of the new content for the community signs are meaningful to Edmontonians. Thanks for your continued interest and support in Vision Zero and making Edmonton’s streets safer and more livable.

Safe Mobility




November 26, 2020
The
Safe Mobility Strategy 2021-2025 has been completed, and it is available for review here.


Safe and livable streets benefit public health, local economy and the environment through creating urban places built for people. This strategy will help to shape how Edmonton’s streets are planned, designed, built, activated, and maintained. Significant progress has been made toward Vision Zero, and the Safe Mobility Strategy will continue this momentum and support a healthy, connected, and thriving city.


Thank you to the 3,500 people who gave us their feedback on this project. This shows us how important safe and livable streets are to Edmontonians. The results of our public engagement are available in two What We Heard reports as well as other supplemental information in the Project Related Documents & Videos section below.


We will present the strategy to the Urban Planning Committee on December 1, 2020. You can watch it at councilontheweb.edmonton.ca. Stay tuned for the results!

Did you miss the Safe Mobility Live Stream event on October 14? You can watch the recording below.


On Wednesday, October 14 our team hosted a Safe Mobility Live Stream. We discussed what safe mobility looks like around the world, shared results from the analysis, research and public engagement that helped to develop the Safe Mobility Strategy 2021-2025, and gave an overview of the strategy’s key actions and where we’re headed from here in making Edmonton’s streets safer and more livable.

Presenters:

  • “Global Examples of Safe Mobility” - Bill Schultheiss, Director of Sustainable Safety, Toole Design

  • “What We’ve Learned” - Laura Contini, Safe Mobility Strategy Project Manager, City of Edmonton

  • “Where We Are Now, And Where We Are Headed” - Jessica Lamarre, Director of Traffic Safety, City of Edmonton

Thank you for providing your input.


Phase 2 of public engagement on this project has ended. From September 9-23, we asked Edmontonians for their feedback on the draft themes and key actions that will make our streets safer and more livable. Over 1900 people responded and gave us their feedback. We are now compiling the results and will use them to refine the Safe Mobility Strategy.

To stay involved with the project, please sign up for project updates. This is how we will share news about next steps and important dates, such as an upcoming webinar and presenting the Strategy to City Council.

Throughout the project we received over 1100 pins on the map, collected 59 ideas, and our two surveys received a total of 3,700 responses. Thank you to everyone who provided their input.

What informed the Key Actions and Themes?



Knowing where and why traffic crashes are happening and who is most impacted will help us start to better understand the full picture of traffic safety in Edmonton.

These actions are informed by the following information:

Lived Experiences: This June, over 1800 people completed a survey where we asked people how they travel around Edmonton and how safe they feel while doing so. We learned that peoples’ sense of safety varies based on factors like mode of transportation, gender, or use of a mobility aid. The results of this survey and other engagement activities are available in this What We Heard Report.

Data and Research: The project has identified a High Injury Network and conducted Crash and Equity analyses to find out where and why serious and fatal crashes are happening, who is most impacted, and what we need to do to eliminate them on our streets.

Two discussion papers were produced that have been instrumental in the development of the Safe Mobility Strategy. The Policy and Planning Context Discussion Paper summarizes the current traffic safety strategies and policies from the international scale to the local scale. The Changing the Conversation Around Traffic Safety Discussion Paper outlines the rationale for the Safe Mobility Strategy by showing how it supports the goals of ConnectEdmonton.

What is my feedback being used for?

Your feedback is helping us to prioritize the action items in the upcoming Safe Mobility Strategy 2021-2025.
