Speed limit on all of Cornwall Avenue in Kitsilano could be cut to 30 km/hr

One City Councillor Christine Boyle and Green Councilor Pete Fry are proposing a driving speed limit reduction for the entire length of Cornwall Avenue in Kitsilano.

The speed limit on Cornwall Avenue is currently generally 50 km/hr, but as a measure to improve road safety — particularly for pedestrians and cyclists — they want the speed limit reduced to 30 km/hr.

The reduced maximum speed of 30 km/hr would apply to all of the 1.4 km long, eight-city-block stretch of Cornwall Avenue between Burrard Street and Trafalgar Street — where Cornwall Avenue transitions into Point Grey Road and then Macdonald Street. The municipal government classifies Cornwall Avenue as an arterial road.
