August 19, 2020 Help Shape the Future of Road Safety for Winnipeg

Work on the Road Safety Strategic Action Plan is underway. We want to hear your perceptions of road safety, about your experience as a road user (pedestrian, cyclist or motorist), and how we can improve the safety of Winnipeg roads.

Our public engagement goals for this project are to:

  • Understand Winnipeggers perception of road safety issues and their vision for safer roads;
  • Understand road safety issues from the perspectives of all road users (pedestrians; cyclists; and motorists);
  • Gather input from Winnipeggers on improvements to the road network, road safety enhancements or innovations, and road safety education;
  • Gather input from Winnipeggers on their priorities for road safety investments and;
  • Communicate how public input was used to help shape the Road Safety Strategies and Action Plan.

Join as at an upcoming event! For more information, or to register for an event, visit the Get Involved tab.

Talk Road Safety

We selected four pop-up locations to engage with communities in higher needs areas that experience higher rates of collisions.

At locations marked with an asterisk (*): Get a bike tune up from the WRENCH and tell us why road safety matters to you.

PLEASE NOTE: Public Health measures will be adhered to at all pop-up events. Gathering size will be limited to 50 people at a time, and appropriate social distance will be maintained. The use of face masks at in-person events is highly recommended. If, in case of poor weather, an event is moved indoors a limited supply of single-use masks will be made available to those without one. Please self-screen prior to attending, stay home if you are ill, and wash or sanitize your hands.

COVID-19 information:
