Plateau traffic policies targeted
The Journal has set out against Plateau traffic calming today, talking to shopkeepers about a decline in business blamed on the difficulty of getting to the Plateau in a car now.
They also rustled up a prof from HEC to weigh in about the fragility of commercial streets, and talked to councillor Alex Norris who blames major roadworks in the area for at least some of the downturn in business.
I have readers from the Plateau. Is there any truth in the notion that Projet’s efforts to create peaceful residential streets are at the expense of commercial stretches like Mont-Royal? Is the Plateau really so hard to negotiate now in a car?
