Regional Council Implements a No-Stopping Zone on Regional Road 50 in Bolton
on a Four-Month Trial Basis

(Brampton) - Regional Council yesterday approved a no-stopping zone during peak morning and evening rush hours on Regional Road 50 in Bolton, for a four-month trial period.

The no-stopping zone will be tested on a portion of Regional Road 50 to the north and south of Regional Road 9 (King Street). Stopping will be prohibited on the west side of Regional Road 50 during the hours of 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., Monday to Friday. On the east side the prohibition will apply from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday.

"This action will help improve traffic flow during peak hours in Bolton," said Mitch Zamojc, Region of Peel Commissioner of Public Works. "We will closely monitor the area during the four-month period, and we will also be listening to the public's comments to help determine the benefits of the no-stopping zone."

An Open House is being organized by the Region of Peel to obtain comments from the public regarding the implementation of the no-stopping zone and other traffic congestion issues.

The date and location of the Open House will be announced when available.

The no-stopping zone will be in effect when signs are placed to indicate the area where stopping will be prohibited. The use of the no-stopping zone is part of a strategy to improve services in the Downtown Bolton Core.
