Road Access Permits

Speed Reduction & Traffic Calming

In Pitt Meadows, we are working to reduce speeding in the community with:

  • Education and awareness in collaboration with the RCMP and ICBC
  • Enforcement by the Ridge Meadows RCMP
  • Engineering and traffic calming devices on local roads

Traffic calming devices are intended for urban local residential roads. Arterial and collector* roads need to carry more traffic and run at higher speeds to keep traffic flowing and are generally not suitable for traffic calming.

*Traffic Calming will be considered on collectors in limited circumstances, such as roads fronting schools and parks.

Street Sweeping

As part of city street maintenance, the City of Pitt Meadows conducts a street sweeping program.  Main routes are maintained once every month, and a full sweep of all streets is done in the spring, summer and fall.  Street sweeping is scheduled to take place on opposite days to garbage and recycling/organics pick-up.
