Traffic Signal Improvements Expanded Across the City Of Toronto
The City of Toronto is expanding its signal retiming program, updating an additional 357 signals on 17 corridors to improve the flow of traffic. By the end of 2017, approximately 1,500 traffic signals – about 60 per cent of the city's traffic signals – will be retimed.
As part of Mayor Tory’s six-point congestion management plan, signal retiming ensures signals are up-to-date and responsive to the needs of all road users. In 2015, signal retiming resulted in reduced travel times along 11 of the city’s busiest roads.
