The survey is required before traffic calming improvements can be installed.

Councillor Ray Brydon also suggested another possible traffic calmer when the issue was raised at the district’s July 12 meeting: a greater RCMP presence and more frequent speed limit reminders.

“There’s some really fast speeds along that area even though it’s posted at 50 kilometres per hour,” he said.

“It’s like a drag strip sometimes.”
