Vision Zero Road Safety Framework

Cathedral Community Safety Zone

City Council approved the creation of a Community Safety Zone in the Cathedral neighbourhood on April 10, 2024. The 40 km/h speed limit in this Community Safety Zone will become enforceable in July 2024.


Background

The City of Regina is developing a new Framework to improve safety for all road users in Regina, including pedestrians, drivers and cyclists, over the next five years. Vision Zero is a concept that uses a data-driven and safe systems approach to improve traffic safety in the community, with a goal of eliminating all injury and fatality collisions on our transportation network.

As part of the Vision Zero program, the City is planning to create Regina’s first Community Safety Zone in the Cathedral neighbourhood.

Community Safety Zones provide enhanced protection for all road users in higher-risk areas by implementing a reduced speed limit of 30 km/h, in addition to other road safety measures. The Cathedral neighbourhood was selected to be the first Community Safety Zone because it has a high volume of vulnerable road users and features a unique mix of land uses including schools, daycares and an active commercial centre.
