KENSINGTON – Kensington will spend more than $17,000 on electric speed radar signs to slow down traffic travelling in the community.

Town council’s public safety committee held discussions and initially recommended the purchase of three speed signs but has since opted for a fourth.

One sign will be placed in the school zone along Victoria Street East; a second at Victoria Street West; and a third at Broadway Street South. All three areas are in zones where the speed limit drops from 90 km/h to 50 km/h.

The committee also recommended that a fourth speed sign be installed along Victoria Street East at the entrance to the school zone heading east.

The locations for the signs were selected by Kensington Police Chief Lewie Sutherland.

“The way I look at it, the goal of this for me was to protect that school zone,” the police chief said. “It’s not uncommon to have people speeding east on Victoria East Street and as well as coming into town. Where we have a problem there is a lot of traffic that comes up Russell Street then travels towards the school.”

Sutherland said it is a highly travelled area.

“There are a lot of kids walking in that area,” he said. “It’s a major concern for me. We have people there doing crosswalk duty in the morning. The kids were the name of the game for me and the department.”

Mayor Rowan Caseley said the justification behind the expenditure is safety.

“It’s for keeping safety in mind, slowing people down,” the mayor said.

The Insurance Bureau of Canada has contributed $2,000 to help defray the costs of the speed radar signs.

“The town hasn’t actually received the funds at this time,” said Kensington chief administrative officer Geoff Baker.  It is made through a not-for-profit operation. They made it through the Queen Elizabeth Home and School Association and they will turn those monies over to us given (a radar sign) be installed in the school zone.”

The total cost for the four speed signs is $17,656 and will come from the 2015 capital budget.
