Police help slow down speeding cars in north Mississauga neighbourhood

City officials and residents in a northwest Mississauga neighbourhood will meet with Peel Regional Police early in the new year in an effort to slow down speeding cars on a busy residential street.

City of Mississauga Ward 10 Councillor Sue McFadden said in her recent newsletter to residents that a meeting that was supposed to take place earlier this month has been rescheduled for Jan. 11 at 7 p.m.

The session will seek answers to a speeding problem on Trelawny Circle, which runs off Tenth Line W. just south of Derry Rd., in west Meadowvale.

The meeting will also encourage public input and provide results of a residents’ survey.

“I am hosting a meeting to further engage with the public on concerns expressed to me about speeding and aggressive driving on Trelawny Circle,” the councillor wrote in her newsletter.

“This is the second in a series of public engagement opportunities to consider options around how to address the risk to public safety caused by driver behaviour on this particular road. While this issue is happening in other places in Ward 10–and indeed across the city–this session will focus solely on the unique challenges inherent with Trelawny Circle, a four-lane, curved roadway with two schools in a residential neighbourhood.”

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Secondary School and Trelawny Public School are located just steps apart on the “curved” section of the road near its western-most stretch.

Cars speeding into and out of the curved section of roadway may have trouble spotting students trying to cross the street in those locations.

McFadden said the meeting will also include a presentation by police officers on their enforcement statistics on Trelawny Circle as well as an introduction to the Road Watch program. Also, results of a public survey will be presented and there will be time for questions from those in attendance to round out the session, she added.

McFadden added that area residents can still take part in the survey.

“If you live on or near Trelawny, or use it regularly for your commute, please take a moment to complete a survey I have prepared to help us determine the preferred approaches that may be considered in addressing speeding on this road,” she said.

The survey, which can be found using a link in McFadden’s newsletter, is limited to one response per household.
