Vision Zero Strategy
As Chair of the Mississauga Road Safety Committee, I was pleased to move the new Vision Zero Strategy prepared by our staff to Council. This plan will shape the way we address safety for all on our roads over the short and long term. Our committee is looking forward to moving ahead with new educational campaigns aimed towards our goal of zero injuries or fatalities on our roads. We want to ensure all people can travel safely everywhere in Mississauga and the Region of Peel.
New Pedestrian Crosswalk Approved on Glen Erin Drive
Council recently approved my request for a pedestrian activated crosswalk on Glen Erin Drive south of Thomas Street. This will provide safe crossing for pedestrians using the trail through Sugar Maple Woods and Middlebury Park and school. I have been trying to get a crossing here for some time and I am pleased Council has supported it. This meets our goals in our Vision Zero Strategy.
New Signals Battleford and Glen Erin
You may have seen the city installed new traffic signals at Glen Erin and Battleford. These will be activated soon and are part of our regular signal upgrade program. Staff did agree to my request to add left turn signals at the location as it made sense to do this when the work was being done. These will operate at peak hours when 3 or more vehicles are waiting to turn.
Draft Transportation Master Plan
Council will soon be considering approval of our new Transportation Master Plan. The policies in the plan will shape how we move around in Mississauga from today to 2041. For information visit

Snow Clearing Services
Winter is still here so check to see what levels of service we provide. This winter has been extremely hard for our crews to keep roads and sidewalks cleared. Freezing rain on top of snow has made the job almost impossible in some areas. Please exercise caution and report any unsafe locations to 311.

Toboggan Runs in Ward 9
We are fortunate to have two places to toboggan in the ward. As part of the construction of Union Park, we renovated the toboggan run making it safer to use and Castlegreen remains a fun place to play.
