Support for Quidi Vidi Traffic Changes #nltraffic


The City of St. John's has gathered feedback on changes to traffic in Quidi Vidi.


Earlier this month the city launched a public engagement process to assess a proposed pedestrian-only zone in the ‘inner gut’ of Quidi Vidi Village.


Public opinion was sought on introducing one-way traffic flow from Regiment Road through Cadet Road eastbound through the Village.


After gathering feedback, both residents and business owners were supportive of the inner gut closure and like the concept of piloting this change this summer and making a permanent change only if the pilot is deemed a success.


Businesses generally were more supportive of a weekend-only closure for the pilot, while residents prefer to see it every day.


Council will review the results at the upcoming Committee of the Whole meeting on June 30.
