At the March 29 City Council Meeting, Aidan introduced a motion to test traffic calming measures on Aberdeen. The changes proposed by the City's traffic department, include:
- Pedestrian activated light at Cottage.
- Pedestrian crossover on the southbound to westbound right turn channel at Queen Street and Aberdeen Avenue.
- Changes to the Dundurn and Aberdeen intersection (click here for details and here for a graphic image of the lane marking changes).
In a Hamilton Spectator article, Aidan called the measures necessary for neighbourhood safety and a "good compromise" between doing nothing and implementing a permanent, narrowing "road diet" requested by local residents worried about speeding motorists.
