La Pêche traffic management
August 6, 2021

The Municipality of La Pêche is implementing a number of traffic management measures for the safety and peace of mind of the residents.

Installation of Traffic-Calming Bollards

In order to respond to speed issues raised by the public, the Municipality of La Pêche installed flexible bollards on Burnt Hill, Rockurst, de la Source, Gilbert and Beausoleil, Riverside, Vallée-de-Wakefield.

A Ville de Gatineau study has shown that these bollards reduce the average speed by 6 km/h. They are comparable to speed bump in terms of efficiency, but they cost less and are easier to install.

Summer Traffic Management

The Municipality of La Pêche is working with the CCN to safeguard the tranquillity of residents on Chemin Schnobb and Chemin Brazeau. Measures installed last summer are being reinstated, including local traffic, no-parking signs at certain locations and a variable message sign at the north-west corner of the intersection of Chemin de la Beurrerie and Route 366 to advise motorists of closures.

In Wakefield and Alcove, the municipality is working with the RCM police to improve signage to better identify areas where parking is prohibited and direct people to public parking lots. Since the Wakefield centre is reserved for mass vaccination against Covid-19, its parking lot is reserved for that activity. The public is encouraged to go to the Vorlage ski centre, which has made its parking lot available to the general public.
