As of October 30th – Durham Region activates more red light cameras in select locations

– Posted in: Uncategorized

Whitby, Ontario – As part of Durham Vision Zero’s goal to eliminate fatalities on our roadways, Durham Region has activated more red light cameras at select locations throughout Durham Region to help improve traffic safety.

When: Five more red light cameras have been activated as of today (October 30).

Where:            

New Locations

  • Highway 2 at Courtice Road, Clarington
  • Stevenson Road North at King Street West, Oshawa
  • Simcoe Street North at Rossland Road West, Oshawa
  • Ritson Road North at Bond Street East, Oshawa
  • Liverpool Road at Bayly Street, Pickering

Other Active Locations

  • Westney Road North at Delaney Drive, Ajax
  • Simcoe Street North at Conlin Road, Oshawa
  • Thickson Road at Dundas Street East, Whitby

Coming Soon

  • Salem Road at Bayly Street East, Ajax
  • Taunton Road East at Lake Ridge Road, Whitby
  • Taunton Road East at Altona Road, Pickering

Why: Red light running has the potential to cause serious injury or death for both the offending driver and innocent victims. The Region’s collision records database shows 534 collisions over a three-and-a-half-year period at signalized intersections where the cause was specifically attributed to a driver disobeying traffic control indications. Many of these collisions resulted in significant injuries and sometimes death.

The Region of Durham is one of many municipalities across Ontario using red light cameras to create safer roads. For more information on red light cameras in Durham Region, visit durham.ca/RedLightCameras.

Durham Vision Zero is a long-term plan

Have Your Say – New Long-Term Waste Management Plan

– Posted in: Uncategorized

Did you know that Durham developed its first Waste Plan in 1999? Under the first Waste Plan, the Region expanded the Green Bin, Blue Box and Hazardous Waste programs, and introduced electronics, textiles and porcelain recycling, increasing the waste diversion rate from 30 to 63 per cent, and developed the made-in-Durham waste disposal solution in the Durham York Energy Centre.

Now, we need your help! We’re developing a new Long-Term Waste Management Plan to help focus our goals for how we manage waste over the next 20 years. Learn more about the innovative ways we plan to manage waste, like using Anaerobic Digestion to convert food waste into renewable energy and finding reuse options for ash generated at the Durham York Energy CentreFind out more and complete the survey at DurhamWasteOpenHouse.ca.
