With the overall goal of improving safety on the parkways, the National Capital Commission (NCC) is reducing the speed limit from 60 km/h to 40 km/h for the full length of Queen Elizabeth Driveway and a section of Colonel By Drive, from Bronson Avenue to Daly Avenue. This change will go into effect on September 19, 2022 with the installation of new signage.
This new change will ensure a uniform speed limit along these corridors, and increase safety on the parkways. It will also make it easier for pedestrians and cyclists to access the Rideau Canal and surrounding pathways.
With this change, the NCC hopes to continue improving the overall experience for all parkway and pathway users by increasing accessibility and safety.
