Important Upgrades Coming to These Brampton Neighbourhoods
It’s no secret that safety is paramount in any neighbourhood, and now, some important traffic upgrades are coming to the area around a few schools in Brampton.
When it comes to the area around a school in Brampton, there are certain standards that must be followed. With each new school opening, the Peel District School Board and the Dufferin-Peel Catholic School Board submit a School Traffic Assessment with each new proposed school.
The tool analyzes the need for sidewalks, traffic signals, all-way stops, school crossing guards, school warning signs, no stopping signs, and enhanced crosswalks in the area around a school.
So, which neighbourhoods are getting these important upgrades?
Dolson Public School (Ward 6 - Creditview north of El Camino Way), St. Jacinta Marto (Ward 4 - Queen and Creditview), Whaley’s Corners Public Elementary School (Ward 6 - Steeles and Mississauga Road), and Tribune Public School (Ward 6 - Creditview and Sandalwood).
While Dolson Public School and St. Jacinta Marto have yet to open, Whaley’s Corners Public Elementary School and Tribune Public School opened in March 2018.
Here’s a detailed look at what each area is getting, courtesy of recent city council documents:
All of these infrastructure improvements are coming prior to September 2018 for the start of the 2018/2019 school year.
