HRM To Hold Public Information Session on a Potential Roundabout within District 11

(Friday, May 28, 2010) - If you are interested in understanding why HRM staff is recommending a roundabout at the intersection of Devonshire/Duffus/Novalea, come to the public information session on June 2, 2010.


The public information session will be hosted by HRM’s Traffic Services at St. Stephen’s School (3669 Highland Avenue, Halifax) from 7 pm to 9 pm on Wednesday, June 2, 2010.


On May 11, 2010, Halifax Regional Council adopted in principle the use of modern roundabouts on municipal roads where appropriate design guidelines and standards can be met. A roundabout is a circular intersection where traffic goes one way, in a counter clock-wise direction, where vehicles yield upon entry. It provides another option for a controlled intersection, that is, instead of stop signs or traffic signals.


Staff will make a presentation on roundabouts, discuss why a roundabout is recommended at this location and be available to answer any questions.
