Traffic Management Committee
The Traffic Management Committee studies requests and problems relating to signage and traffic control throughout the territory of Saint-Lambert.
More specifically, its mandate is to:
- receive requests and complaints concerning traffic, traffic control, and the use and safety of the road network across the City’s territory;
- issue opinions and make recommendations to City Council about changes that would improve the flow of traffic;
- monitor the implementation of the traffic master plan that was adopted in 2013; and
- conduct a general study of other matters that fall within its scope of expertise.
Because the Traffic Management Committee (the “Committee”) acts in a consultative capacity, City Council is responsible for adopting its recommendations and for taking measures, by resolution or by-law, to implement them.
The Committee is made up of:
- councillor Julie Bourgoin, serving as chairperson;
- Éric Painchaud, Head of the Engineering, Urban Planning and Environment Office;
- Ronald Laurin, Director of the Public Works Office;
- Jonathan Rannou, Captain of the Police Department;
- Nicolas Tanguay, Director of Transport Planning and Development at the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL); and
- residents Lissa Morotti (since April 2014), Philippe Côté (since July 2018) and Jeff Desruisseaux (since April 2019).
If you are concerned about a speed issue or other traffic problems on local streets in your neighbourhood or elsewhere in Saint-Lambert, you can inform the City of the situation by completing and submitting the form below.
Upon receipt, your request will be analyzed to determine whether traffic calming or monitoring measures can be put in place.
Step 1: Verifying whether the request meets the eligibility criteria
The request will be submitted to an internal technical committee for analysis. The following criteria must be met for the situation to qualify for a traffic calming or monitoring measure:
- The traffic calming measure will be applied on a local street only.
- More than 15% of the vehicles drive at speeds of over 45 km/hour.
- If the street concerned lies on a bus circuit under the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL), the request will have to be analyzed by the RTL beforehand.
If the traffic volume or speed requires analysis in order to verify the eligibility of the request, the Engineering Department, in collaboration with the Public Works Office, will be responsible for doing a vehicle count.
Step 2: Determining appropriate traffic calming measures
When the implementation of a traffic calming measure is warranted, the technical committee will make a recommendation to this effect to the Traffic Management Committee at one of its nine annual meetings.
Possible traffic calming measures include:
|Installation of removable or fixed speed display signs|
|Addition of road markings or signs|
|Installation of flexible bollards|
|Installation of speed bumps|
Step 3: Obtaining additional approval
Certain measures require additional approvals following the Committee’s recommendation.
Residents of the targeted sector
If the Committee recommends adding a speed bump or a 30 km/h bollard, additional requirements apply, such as the approval of at least 50% of the residents who would be affected by the measure.
Please consult the following policies (in French only) in this regard:
In these documents, you will also find the conditions for requesting the removal of one or another of these measures.
Depending on the type of measures recommended, the Traffic Management Committee may have to submit the recommendations to City Council for approval.
